    Captain Jason Smith has 18 months with Monterey Fire after serving 7 years with Monterey Airport Fire. He has a total of 14 years of fire service experience. Jason has contributed extensively in managing the transition of the Airport Operations Program into the Monterey Fire Department. He took a voluntary demotion from Lieutenant to Firefighter in the transition of the Airport Fire Department into the Monterey Fire Department as he wanted to learn from the ground up.

    A formal promotion ceremony is planned in the near future.
