                         Goodyear Fire Chief Mark Gaillard to retire,
                                 consult City on finding new chief 

Goodyear Fire Chief Mark Gaillard today announced his retirement.
 
Gaillard, who has worked for the City of Goodyear for 27 years, first began his career as a teenager when the fire
department was a small volunteer staff. Today, the department is a full-time force with 100 firefighters and support
personnel.
 
Chief Gaillard will stay on with the City as a consultant for the next three months to assist in the City’s response to an
internal evaluation of the Department and to help begin the search for his replacement.
 
The Fire Department assessment is the latest in a series of reviews of City departments conducted over the past year to
identify efficiencies and areas needing improvement.
 
Chief Gaillard is a highly respected City employee who has served his hometown with honor. We sincerely thank him for
his service and look forward to building upon his legacy as Goodyear prepares for the next generation of growth in our
community.
