Our Assistant Chief is probably one of the most hardworking and committed firefighters our community has seen. Swedenborg is the owner and operator of a local motel, The Waves.
Assistant Chief attended the University of Utah for two years, he was just working on general classes and exploring the possibilities for a future career. He shortly after got married and settled down in Cannon Beach.
Swedenborg first joined in 1978; during his time here he's responded to many calls offering our new firefighters valuable advice. He joined the department because this is where he had started his business and also where he wanted to raise his family.
Assistant Chief enjoys golfing during his spare time, he doesn't have a favorite book but he could surely write several amazing short novels based on calls and funny moments at the station.
