The City of Charlottetown is pleased to announce Tim Mamye as Fire Chief, effective December 5, 2022. As Fire Chief, Mamye is responsible for overseeing the City’s two Fire Stations and leading a team of 12 career and 85 volunteer members.

“We’re proud to have Tim Mamye as the new Fire Chief for the City of Charlottetown,” said Interim CAO Donna Waddell. “Tim has served well in a leadership role in Fire Services here in Charlottetown for several years. He also played an integral part in achieving a safe and efficient emergency operations response to post-tropical storm Fiona. I am confident his leadership and strategic planning will continue to strengthen the safety of our growing community in the years to come.”

Mamye lived in Charlottetown’s east end until he joined the Canadian Armed Forces at age 18. During his multiple postings across Canada and abroad, Mamye worked with the northern Canadian Rangers and allied countries, earned his United States Marine parachutist badge, and served onboard HMCS Charlottetown as flight co-ordinator for Operation Apollo in 2001. Mamye played competitive hockey in the Canadian Armed Forces, and during his career was a member of eight National Championship teams. Prior to returning to Charlottetown as Deputy Fire Chief in 2011, Mamye was deputy fire chief of 12 Wing Shearwater Fire Department where he led a team of over 50 full time members providing structural, crash rescue and emergency medical responses. He has earned numerous International Fire Service Accreditation Congress seals and certificates throughout his career. Since March 2022, Mamye has served as Acting Fire Chief for the City of Charlottetown.

Mamye also completed both the Certificate of Fire Service Leadership and the Certificate of Fire Service Administration at Dalhousie University, and he looks forward to expanding the department’s training and operational capabilities.

Mamye and his wife Mary Lou have lived in Charlottetown since their return in 2011.
