San Diego Fire-Rescue Chief Tracy Jarman is retiring from the department after 25 years of service.
Jarman’s resignation will be effective June 27. She was appointed chief on June 26, 2006.
“Chief Jarman has done a tremendous job leading our fire department,” Mayor Jerry Sanders said in a press release that was just released. “She is the consummate professional who has worked extremely hard to improve fire service throughout the city and across the region. While I am sad to see her leave, I wish her all the best in retirement.”
The press release also quotes Jarman:
“The success I have enjoyed is due to the support I have received from the men and women of this department who aspire to provide the best firefighting protection and other emergency services to the citizens of San Diego,” said Jarman. “I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to have worked with them and to have received the support I have from the mayor and City Council.”
