“I’m very excited about this opportunity,” Homan said. “I’m excited to join the Fire Chief and help to implement many of the great ideas he has to improve the department. While I will miss being with my crew, I look forward to continuing to work with everyone in the department in this new role.”

Fire Chief Rob Chappell was pleased to make the announcement: “I can’t overstate my excitement. His work as lieutenant has demonstrated he’s ready to take the next step in the administration of this department. I’m looking forward to working with him as he develops his abilities as Deputy Chief.
