Desmarais has served as the City’s Deputy Fire Chief since 2010 and has been a part of the fire department since 1987.

Surrounded by the Mayor, Chicopee’s Police Chief, and friends and family, Desmarais said he took the oath on what turned out to be the 13th anniversary of the day he joined the Chicopee Fire Department.

“Today is a completion, and fulfillment. It’s definite that I was the chosen one, and I’ll be able to guide the department in a better, more direct fashion, now that we have a definitive direction and stability,” said Desmarais.

He said his primary goals for the fire department will be focused on fire prevention.
