Del Mar welcomes new fire department chief

By Kristina Houck

Del Mar welcomed Jon Canavan as the new fire department chief during the Oct. 21 City Council meeting.

Appointed by the city of Encinitas, Canavan has served the city since Oct. 14. In addition to overseeing day-to-day operations of the six-station Encinitas Fire Department, Canavan provides operational oversight for Del Mar and Solana Beach emergency services under a Joint Fire Management Services Agreement.

“We’re really happy to have Jon on board,” said City Manager Scott Huth. “It was quite a recruitment process. We had many candidates, so I think we ought to feel really good that Jon was able to rise to the top. He will be a really big asset for our three agencies — Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar.”

Canavan recently served as the Poway Fire Department division chief. He joined the Poway department in 2003 after spending 13 years with the San Marcos department.

He replaces Scott Henry, who retired after serving the Encinitas Fire Department for more than 30 years.

“It’s a real honor and pleasure to be here and be your new fire chief,” Canavan said. “I’m really looking forward to a strong working relationship between all three cities.”
