Chief Fothergill will step down effective Oct. 31

Chelsea Fire Chief Chuck Fothergill has announced his retirement, which will be effective October 31.

Fothergill’s retirement came as a complete surprise to City Manager Jay Ash and to Fothergill’s colleagues in the fire department as well.

Fothergill was appointed chief late in 2007.

His late father Herbert was a Chelsea Fire Chief for three decades and ruled the fire department with an iron fist.

Chuck Fothergill has announced that his time has come.

City Manager Ash said that a successor to Fothergill has not been chosen.
