New chief selected to lead College Station Fire Department

Jonathan McMahan will be the next chief of the College Station Fire Department, City Manager Kelly Templin announced Tuesday.

About Jonathan McMahan

 McMahan is a fifth-generation Texan who comes to College Station from Rural Metro Fire Department in Tucson, Ariz., where he has been fire chief and regional director since 2013. His experience in the firefighting industry spans more than 25 years:

  • 2013-2017:      Fire Chief and Regional Director | Rural Metro FD, Tucson, Ariz.
  • 2012-2013:      Battalion Chief | Rural Metro FD, Tucson, Ariz.
  • 2010-2012:      Captain/Paramedic | Rural Metro FD, Tucson, Ariz.
  • 2005-2010:      Engineer/Paramedic | Rural Metro FD, Tucson, Ariz.
  • 2003-2005:      Firefighter/EMT | Rural Metro FD, Tucson, Ariz.
  • 1996-2001:      Firefighter/EMT/Training Captain | Curry County, Oregon
  • 1989-1995:      Firefighter/EMT/Fire Marshal | Caddo Mills, Texas

In addition to holding associate of applied science degrees in Paramedicine and Fire Science from Pima Community College (2008), McMahan earned a bachelor’s degree in Public Safety/Emergency Management (2010) and a master’s degree in Executive Fire Service Leadership (2012) from Grand Canyon University. He is a graduate of the Executive Fire Officer Program from the National Fire Academy, and holds Chief Fire Officer and Chief EMS Officer designations from the Center for Public Safety Excellence. He is scheduled to earn his doctorate in Organizational Culture from GCU in 2018.

"I'm overwhelmed with excitement," McMahan said. "Coming home to Texas, coming to such a high-caliber city and organization — and with Texas A&M University and TEEX being local — I'm humbled and honored by this amazing opportunity."

Chief McMahan is expected to begin in late February or early March, according to Templin.

“I’m thrilled with the response this opening received, and with all the talented fire professionals who expressed interest in it,” Templin said. “We had four top-notch finalists. Chief McMahan is an energetic and intellectual leader who will challenge our fire department to continue building on its already long list of achievements. I think he’ll make me a better leader, too.”

Chief McMahan will lead a department that has been under interim leadership since June 2016, when former Chief Eric Hurt retired after 35 years with CSFD. The duties have been handled during that time by 32-year department veteran Joe Don Warren.

“I owe a debt of gratitude to Chief Warren, who has led his department with the utmost professionalism these past seven months,” Templin said.
