Bend Fire Chief Larry Huhn wraps up 30-years of service as he announces his April retirement.  The search for his replacement will begin in January and Huhn says he’ll stay until the new chief is hired.  Huhn joined the Bend Fire Department in 1983 and was promoted to captain in 1992, and then to battalion chief in 1997.  In 2003, he was promoted to deputy chief and logistics officer.  City Manager Eric King promoted him to fire chief in 2008.  Hunn says he’s looking forward to opening a new chapter in his life and seeing where it takes him.
