Message from the Chief
First, I would like to congratulate Retired Fire Chief Ian Gow on his 33 years of continual dedication and commitment to the citizens of Placer County. He modernized the response capabilities and service delivery models while simultaneously transforming the Placer Hills Fire Department from an all-volunteer organization to the professional ALS Fire Department it is today. He should be very proud of these accomplishments! I appreciate the efforts he has made to set up the Placer Hills, Foresthill and Newcastle Fire Protection Districts for success in the future.
I’m looking forward to working
together with everybody here in Placer County. I value having
everyone within our agency involved as a team in the
development of both short term and long term goals and
strategic planning. My personal goal is to continue to
collaboratively build a forward thinking, modern, cohesive
organization with both the Placer Hills Fire Protection
District and all of the cooperating agencies that contract
with us for my leadership, based upon mutual respect and trust
of all personnel!
