Winfield Fire Chief Alan Stoll has announced plans to retire from his position this summer.

His final day with the city of Winfield is set for June 17. Stoll was promoted to chief in 2010 and has served the department since 1990.

He began his career as a firefighter and was promoted to lieutenant in 1998, captain in 2002 and deputy chief and fire marshal in 2008. City officials wished Stoll the best in his retirement.

“Chief Stoll has been an excellent role model for his department,” Mayor Brenda Butters said. “Under his direction, the city expanded our coverage to include Emergency Medical Services. We simply could not have done that without his leadership and guidance.”

City manager Jeremy Willmoth said the city intends to solicit candidates for the position from those currently employed within the department as well as outside.

City staff is currently working on getting the recruitment process ready, and will begin accepting applications within the next few weeks. An interim chief will be appointed following Chief Stoll’s retirement to serve until the position is permanently filled.
