MacDonald named Egg Harbor Fire Chief

Whether in Ephraim or Egg Harbor, you can refer to Justin MacDonald as “fire chief.” The Egg Harbor Fire Commission named MacDonald the department’s next fire chief after being selected from four candidates. MacDonald is no stranger to the Egg Harbor Fire Department, having served as a firefighter since 1996 and promoted to Lieutenant in 2009. MacDonald is also familiar with being a fire chief, serving as the leader of the Ephraim Fire Department since 2015. MacDonald says it is important to him that somebody local leads the department and that he has the community’s support behind him.

Since the departments have their meetings on different nights, MacDonald will be able to serve as the fire chief for both. He also serves as President of MABAS Division 154 (Door County) and the Secretary/Treasurer for the Door County Fire Chief’s Association. MacDonald replaces Jason Staats, who filled in on an interim basis after former fire chief Andy Staats resigned last November.
