He began his career as a volunteer firefighter with the agency before working his way up to fire captain. “My education and the values they taught me about the Winters Fire Department has prepared me for this,” Lopez said when he took the interim fire chief spot last year. “I’m looking forward to the opportunities and the challenges that lay ahead for me and us collectively.” Tuesday evening, Winters City Manager John Donlevy said all three candidates were extremely qualified for the job and that the decision to choose just one to lead the department was difficult. “He will be a great fire chief for Winters Fire,” Donlevy said. Lopez is expected to officially take on the role toward the end of the month. An official swearing-in ceremony will take place at the Winters Fire Station, 700 Main Street on April 4 at 6 p.m. Members of the public are invited to attend.]]>
