ORLAND, Calif. - The Orland Fire Chief Selection Committee appointed its first full-time fire chief for the city.

The committee unanimously selected Justin Chaney, who is the city's current volunteer chief. 

Chaney, co-owner of Chaney-Miller Construction, has served as a volunteer with the Orland Volunteer Fire Department for 18 years.

Up to this point, the chief role was filled by annual election amongst the 45 volunteers.

The chief will be a City of Orland employee with balanced responsibilities between the City and Rural agencies, who will share the cost.

"We're proud to welcome Chief Chaney as a full-time City department head," said Mayor Bruce T. Roundy, "and pleased to continue the remarkable 100-year heritage of partnership with OVFD and the Rural District."
