SOUTHBOROUGH – Steven Achilles has announced that he will resign as the town’s fire chief and Emergency Management director.

Last week, Achilles announced to the Southborough Fire Department and the Select Board that he was taking a “conditional offer of employment” for the position of fire protection manager with Universal Destinations and Experiences in Orlando, Fla.

He will resign his current position no later than Feb. 7, 2024.

The resignation will cap a 38-year career in fire and emergency services for Achilles, the last 4 ½ years in Southborough.

It has been and continues to be a privilege to serve the department, all of you, and the community,” he said.
