County Administrator Max Baker has appointed Deputy Fire Chief Doug Tucker to fire chief of the Los Alamos Fire Department.

“Doug is very qualified and prepared to be the Fire Chief for Los Alamos County,” Baker said. “His many years of experience both with the County as deputy fire chief and from his time with the Phoenix Fire Department have demonstrated an admirable career of that complete preparation.

“He has a tremendous commitment to the fire service and to having the Los Alamos Fire Department remain as an excellent department serving the needs of the community and our important stakeholders from the Laboratory and NNSA. I congratulate him on this promotion and look forward to his continued contributions,” Baker said.

Los Alamos Police Chief Wayne Torpy has worked on a variety of county and community related issues with Tucker for several years.

“Doug Tucker is without question fully qualified and in my opinion the right person to continue to lead the fire department following in the foot steps of Chief Doug MacDonald,” Torpy said.

Tucker spoke at length of his respect and admiration for MacDonald who he has worked side by side with for the last 15 years.
