On Wednesday, Bill Gamble was chosen as the new Emergency Services Director for the Mat-Su Borough. Gamble has served as the interim director since since the resignation of his predecessor, Dennis Brodigan, on April 1st. Gamble served as the Chief of the West Lakes Fire Department since 2003, and first worked as a responder in the borough in 1990. He oversaw the merging of West Lakes and Big Lake Fire Departments, and was Big Lake Fire Chief during the Miller’s Reach fire in 1996.
In a statement, Borough Manager John Moosey says he believes Gamble will “bring a new level of leadership.”
As Bill Gamble takes over Emergency Services, he inherits an environment where three of his chief deputies have either been terminated or resigned amidst an internal investigation. Gamble’s title will change from Acting Director to Emergency Services Director on April 20th.
