District appoints new assistant fire chief

Fire Chief Richard Price recently announced the appointment of Bryan Collins to the position of assistant fire chief of operations for the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District. Collins was previously a battalion chief for the Moraga-Orinda Fire District, overseeing facilities, apparatus and emergency response. The assistant chief position became vacant when Price was appointed fire chief.

"Bryan is already familiar with many aspects of our operations and his local background, experience and relationships make him an excellent fit for our district," said Price.

Collins holds a bachelors degree in occupational studies from California State University at Long Beach, where he is currently completing his master's degree in emergency services administration. He is a 2007 graduate of the National Fire Academy's Executive Fire Officer Program.

Collins and his wife Nancy live in Walnut Creek. They have a 16-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter.
