VCFD Recognizes 108 Employees Who Earned Promotions


CAMARILLO, Calif. – The Ventura County Fire Department will recognize 108 employees Thursday, June 9, for earning 113 promotions over the past two and a half years.

Social distancing restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic prohibited annual ceremonies recognizing sworn personnel and civilian employees who earned promotions. Thursday’s event honors everyone who earned a promotion since the last ceremony in 2019. Five employees earned two promotions during that timeframe.

“I am grateful to have the opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of so many people in our department,” Fire Chief Dustin Gardner said. “During such a challenging time with a pandemic, they continued to grow in their careers, taking on greater roles in our department and delivering excellent service to our community.”

The event will be held at the Ventura County Aviation Unit, a joint program of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and the fire department. It will be livestreamed on VCFD’s Facebook and LinkedIn pages as well as through the department’s Vimeo account.
