MONARCH FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT HIRES AN INTERIM CHIEF
WHILE DIRECTORS ENGAGE IN A COMPREHENSIVE SEARCH FOR A PERMANENT CHIEF.

Chesterfield, June 19, 2014 – The Monarch Fire Protection District is pleased to announce the appointment of Interim Fire Chief Wayne Charles (Chuck) Marsonette. Chuck has a diverse public safety background with 23 years of experience in fire, emergency medical services, and law enforcement.

Most recently Chuck has worked with Reliant Care Management in their Risk Management Division. His contribution has resulted in a reduction in employee injuries and workers’ compensation claims. In addition, he has extensive knowledge of incident command and emergency planning/management.

Chuck understands the importance of public safety and has the leadership skills and experience needed to lead in an effective and efficient manner. His focus will be to manage operations and ensure the community receives quality emergency service.

When advised of his selection, Mr. Marsonette responded, “I am looking forward to joining the Monarch Fire District staff to work with all employees providing the best Emergency Service possible to all of our residents, businesses and individuals in need”. Chuck resides in the St. Louis area with his wife and son.

Board President Robin Harris stated, “The Board was delighted to find an administrator with such an extensive background in emergency services to cover the gap between the departure of our previous chief and our permanent replacement. I am sure Chief Marsonette will prove to be an asset to Monarch. On behalf of the Board, the staff and all of our employees, I would like to welcome Chuck to the Monarch Fire Protection District.”
