When the City of Canyon Lake started forming its new fire department, Bailey Ward was handpicked by Chief LaTendresse to serve as the department’s administrative assistant/analyst.

Prior to joining the fire department, Ward worked for a year as an office specialist and as an intern for the city. At the request of Chief LaTendresse, the city transferred Ward to the fire department’s administrative office.

During her training, Ward worked closely with Cheif LaTendresses on several special projects, including inventory, creating a record-keeping system, and helping to arrange interviews.

In her current role, Ward serves as the initial contact/recourse person for the fire department, screens calls and visitors, sorts and distributes mail and correspondence, performs data entry, participates in aspects of financial and budgetary record keeping, purchasing, and other routine transactions to assist in the administrative support of departmental programs, and checks, maintains, and tabulates statistical data and records.

“It has been great working for the City of Canyon Lake for the past year and being able to see the city’s formation of the fire department,” Ward said. “I love my job.”

Ward holds two bachelor’s degrees and is currently working on her master’s degree at California State San Bernardino. She is majoring in public administration.

Ward resides in the City of Corona with her boyfriend, Jordan, and cat, Salem. When not working, Ward volunteers at Temescal Canyon High School and enjoys spending time with her family and traveling.
