“The Joint Powers Agreement which formed Heartland Fire and Rescue has been a major success”, said El Cajon City Manager Douglas Williford in a press release. “Rick has played a significant role in that success. We were fortunate to have such a highly qualified individual already within the organization and we look forward to working with Chief Sitta as he assumes his new duties.”

Sitta has experience with Cal Fire Type I incident management teams for major wildland responses throughout California.

He was honored with a commendation for bravery during the devastating 2003 Cedar Fire in San Diego County.
Sitta will be paid $134,950 annually.

As the new Heartland Fire Chief, Sitta will oversee operations of the cooperative management services for the three fire and rescue departments in El Cajon, La Mesa and Lemon Grove.
