City of Morro Bay SealFollowing a comprehensive recruitment process, Tripepi Smith Talent Solutions (TSTS) has successfully helped the City of Morro Bay place Daniel McCrain as its next Fire Chief.

“Chief McCrain is truly a great fit for our organization and I’m thrilled to have him lead our team of first responders into the future,” said Morro Bay City Manager Scott Collins. “From the start, we made it clear to Bob and the team that there were many stakeholders with important input and opinions that had to be considered when hiring for this position. The entire Talent Solutions team made sure to take all feedback into consideration from the formulation of the brochure language to the interview screening and beyond, and they uncovered a group of excellent candidates.”

Chief McCrain was ultimately offered the position due to his breadth of knowledge, training experience and tenure within the Emergency Services field. He comes to Morro Bay from the Cambria Community Services District Fire Department where he most recently served as Fire Captain/Paramedic. He is also an instructor at Cuesta College, educating future paramedics and EMTs.

“We’re thrilled to deliver another successful recruitment for Morro Bay off our list and thank the City for their active participation in the process,” said TSTS Director Bob Hall. “Morro Bay is a unique and close-knit community with a lot of exciting changes and opportunities coming their way. It’s very rewarding to be a part of placing a capable leader in their organization at such a pivotal time.”

TSTS assisted with design work and marketing services for the recruitment for the Director of Public Works position in Morro Bay earlier this year. The firm has also recently placed key positions in the Cities of Manteca and Tracy.
