Posted On Wednesday October 06, 2021

Cornwall Fire Services Chief Jeff Weber is proud to introduce Deputy Fire Chief Leighton Woods.

Woods will work alongside Chief Weber and Deputy Chief Stephenson, with a focus on emergency management, public education, and fire prevention.

“The emergency management portfolio was added to the Cornwall Fire Services Division earlier this year,” said Chief Weber. “Woods’s background with the paramedic service makes him a great fit for our team.”

Deputy Chief Woods began his career with Cornwall SDG Paramedic Services as a paramedic in 2006. He was promoted to Platoon Commander in 2017.

“I look forward to connecting with Cornwall residents and making sure they have the resources they need to prevent fires in their homes and prepare for emergencies,” said Deputy Chief Woods. “It happens to be fire prevention week – please take a moment to check your smoke alarms and practice your home escape plan.”
