The Cambria CSD Fire Department is pleased to announce that Fire Captain Dan McCrain has been selected as Morro Bay’s new Fire Chief. He was chosen from a pool of over 20 candidates following a comprehensive interview and assessment process. Dan will begin work with the City of Morro Bay on July 31, 2021.
Morro Bay City Manager, Scott Collins, stated, “I am excited to bring Daniel McCrain onboard at this key time in Morro Bay history. The City is going through some big changes and the Fire Department will play a large role in seeing these challenges and opportunities through successfully. Therefore, we need a strong leader and manger to guide these important efforts by working closely with the Fire Department staff. Daniel is the right person for the job, and I look forward to him joining my executive team and leading the Fire Department.”
Dan has over 27 years of fire/paramedic and emergency management service experience, with his last 5 years serving as a Fire Captain/Paramedic with our department. During his 12-year tenure with Cambria Fire, he oversaw emergency response for his shift, and was in charge of fire prevention, community education, the commercial business inspection program, and coordinating our advanced life support program.
Dan has served the Cambria CSD Fire department, the CCSD, and the community of Cambria with his commitment to excellence and customer service. Although we are truly saddened to see him leave, we could not be more pleased to see him progress in his career and proud of what he has accomplished.
