Fire Chief Jim Torpin retired from the District with over 26 years of distinguished service - most recently he was instrumental in helping the District achieve a AAA Bond rating. 
He had a comprehensive succession plan in place and has been working with the District staff over the last few years to ensure a smooth transition.
