After over 27 years of dedicated service to the citizens of Napa, Fire Chief Mike Randolph has announced that he will retire on December 30, 2016. Chief Randolph began his career as a firefighter with the Napa Fire Department in 1989, and was promoted to firefighter/paramedic in 1994, Fire Captain in 1998, Battalion Chief in 2000, and Division Chief in 2005. After serving as Interim Fire Chief for six months, he was appointed as the Fire Chief in 2012.
“Chief Randolph’s contributions to the Napa community have been invaluable and his strong leadership after the earthquake helped in Napa’s recovery. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Chief Randolph for his many years of service and loyalty to the Napa Community,” said Mayor Jill Techel.
“I had no hesitation whatsoever in appointing Mike Randolph to Fire Chief in 2012. He demonstrated for many years his readiness and commitment to leading our fire department and has been a true asset to our organization throughout his career here. We wish him and his family a happy and healthy retirement and offer our most sincere thank you for his many years of service to our City,” expressed City Manager Mike Parness.
Chief Randolph will continue to serve in his position until the end of the year. The city manager is immediately launching a process to hire a new chief.
