Fire Chief Jeff Murray

Maui Fire Department Chief Jeff Murray will retire Saturday after 29 years with the department.

Murray initially broached his decision last week to local media but did not make an official announcement until Wednesday.

Deputy Fire Chief Lionel Montalvo will fill Murray’s position on an interim basis until the Maui Fire Commission names a permanent replacement.

Murray has served as fire chief since 2008. He joined the department in 1989 after previously serving as a fire fighter in the Air Force and Air Force Reserve.
