“It is with heavy hearts that we officially announce the passing of Fire Chief Darren McClelland. First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Nicole, and daughters Ashley and Hayley, along with his extended family and many friends.

Darren had and will always have the love and respect of the many people who were fortunate enough to have worked with him during his twenty-two-plus years of service with the Swift Current Fire Department as a Fire Fighter, Deputy Chief and Chief. 

While on Monday we lost a colleague, a true friend and a brother, our fond memories of Darren will live on forever. May he Rest in Peace.”
