Worcester Fire Chief Gardell announces retirement

Worcester Fire Chief Geoffrey Gardell will retire from the department at the end of January, City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr. announced in a statement.

Gardell was appointed fire chief in the summer of 2015. At the time, he informed Augustus he planned to stay 12 to 18 months.

The city will follow the state Civil Service process in selecting a new fire chief. Internal candidates for the position have already taken a written exam and gone through an assessment center evaluation. The Civil Service Commission has the results of those evaluations, and is expected to provide the city with a list of candidates this month.
