From the Prospect Heights Fire Protection District:

Battalion Chief Recruitment

Currently the PHFD has one shift without a battalion chief. Under the recently adopted collective bargaining agreement the fire chief is entrusted to appoint the battalion chief. The PHFD has fewer candidates for battalion chief than desired as a result of several 

personnel actions in the past few years that included the PHFD’s transition from some part time officers to all full time officers and an increase in the number of full time firefighter/paramedics. Therefore, the PHFD is conducting a search for external candidates for battalion chief. Any identified external candidates will be evaluated with the internal candidates in an effort to identify the best candidate for battalion chief. It is anticipated that the review, selection, and appointment will occur in the next 90 days.
