Tim Herman is on board as the new Apex Fire Chief, after several rounds of screenings, interviews, and an intensive 2-day assessment center where candidates participated in role-plays, presentations, and written exercises designed to assess the skills and knowledge considered critical to the position.
“I look forward to leading the professional men and women who are committed to the mission of helping people every day,” said Herman. “The Apex Fire Department has always been a cutting-edge, progressive, and proactive organization which lead me to pursue this opportunity. As a resident of the Triangle most of my life, Apex has always been a town I wanted to call home. I look forward to experiencing the peak of good living!”
Tim brings over 26 years of fire and emergency service experience, with the last 12 years serving as the Deputy Fire Chief for the Garner Fire/Rescue Department. There, Herman was instrumental in the department’s success in obtaining their accredited agency status, as well as lowering their ISO rating.
