Wondering what's going on within the Ripon Fire District. I saw a nationwide search posting that RAFD was looking for a chief.

Anyone have any details of the political climate/issues? Just wondering if it is worth applying for or not. I am set to retire from my current department in the next few months.

Any FD guys or "friends" of the department have any insight?

Fire Chief already quit after only one year in this town. Not surprising at all.

Wait till you have some time with your new one. He said the same things when he got his last Chief's job. Maybe you can find some old surplus military body armor.

Has Ripon hired a new chief this year? I interviewed with the commissioners for the position and never heard back from them. It was around the holidays and I got busy and then realized they never called or wrote back
