After a nine-month nationwide search, Unalaska has finally hired a new fire chief.
D.J. Dunn will start next month, leading the island’s fire and emergency medical services.
“He’s exceptionally qualified for the position," said Mike Holman, director of the Department of Public Safety. "He has a bachelor’s degree in nursing, so he’s a paramedic and a nurse. He’s got significant fire experience as well as training.”
