New fire chief sworn in

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District hosted a reception Nov. 10 during which Tony Michel was sworn in as the district’s new Fire Chief.
He is filling the role vacated when Chief Nick Pavone retired at the end of October.

As the Fire Chief, Michel will be responsible for managing the fire protection and life safety resources for the RSFFPD. He will also provide recommendations and technical staff assistance to the Board of Directors. Chief Michel’s other duties will include implementing and enforcing the rules and regulations governing the fire district, continuing the implementation of the district’s Strategic Plan, and coordinating activities with other fire and governmental agencies.
