Oct. 20, 2015—Roseville Acting City Manager Rob Jensen announced today the appointment of Rick Bartee as the city's next Fire Chief.
Bartee will join Roseville following a 34-year career with the Phoenix Fire Department, from which he’s retiring as assistant chief this month. He takes the helm at the Roseville Fire Department on Nov. 2.
Finalists from a nationwide search were invited to a daylong session of interviews with three panels: An industry panel comprising fire service professionals, a community panel including the mayor and community leaders, and a staff panel comprising city department heads. Bartee emerged as the top candidate among all three panels.
When disaster strikes throughout the state, the Placer County Fire agencies are prepared to act. The Western Placer County Fire Chiefs Association is the organization, operating under guidelines from California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES), to organize and deploy local emergency response when requests for assistance are made from other areas of the state.
All the experts predicted that the fire season of 2015 would be one of the worst in history. The exceptionally dry weather and low moisture content in the ground created a perfect formula for fire to strike throughout the state of California. The City of Roseville Fire Department along with the other fire agencies in the region were challenged to prepare for this predicted season.
