The City of Rocklin is accepting applications for a Deputy Fire Chief to assist the Fire Chief in managing and directing the Fire Department. The Deputy Fire Chief is responsible for assisting in the development and implementation of Fire Department goals, objectives, guidelines and priorities; directing, managing, coordinating, and supervising the personnel and activities of the Operations and Training Divisions; commanding and coordinating emergency incidents including fire suppression, rescue, emergency medical services and hazardous material response; and providing responsible administrative support to the Fire Chief and others.
The Deputy Fire Chief is a single position management class that is not assigned to a shift, works forty (40) hours per week, and is exempt in accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA). This classification is distinguished from the Fire Battalion Chief-Line in that the latter responds to emergency and non-emergency events and if warranted assumes and maintains command.
The Deputy Fire Chief reports to the Fire Chief and is responsible for providing direct and indirect supervision to management, professional, supervisory, public safety volunteers, and clerical personnel within the Fire Department.
