CAMBRIA COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT ENDS EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT WITH FIRE CHIEF JUSTIN VINCENT
The District has ended the employment agreement of Fire Chief Justin Vincent effective 10/3/23. This decision comes after the General Manager's comprehensive review and careful consideration. The separation results from a detailed examination and investigation of Fire Department operations while ensuring respect and confidentiality and following relevant laws and guidelines related to employee termination procedures and announcements.
The search for a new Fire Chief will begin in the next six months. In the interim period, Captain Michael Burkey will assume the responsibilities of the Fire Chief to ensure the seamless operation and readiness of our Fire Department.
This transition period will be challenging, but we are dedicated to maintaining transparency, open communications, and providing uninterrupted and exceptional fire protection services to the community throughout this process. We ask for the community's support and cooperation as we move forward.October 3, 2023 Press Release
