City of Henderson selects new fire chief

Deputy Fire Chief Shawn White has been named the eleventh City of Henderson Fire Chief.

"Chief White has the experience and skills that we need at the helm of the Henderson Fire Department and he knows our community firsthand," said Henderson City Manager Bob Murnane.

White replaces Fire Chief Matthew Morris, who has accepted a position as fire chief with Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority after 21 years with the Henderson Fire Department. White will be sworn in as interim Henderson fire chief on Sept. 7 with permanent ratification of the chief position by Mayor and Council expected to take place at the Sept. 19 City Council Meeting.

White began his career in the fire service in 1989 with the Albuquerque Fire Department, where he reached the rank of lieutenant. He joined the Henderson Fire Department in 1999 as a firefighter/paramedic, and was promoted to captain and battalion chief before he was named deputy fire chief in 2014.
