Costa Mesa Fire Chief Dan Stefano announced Thursday that firefighter Nick Cerciello has been promoted to captain.
"Nick has demonstrated sound leadership qualities, relevant technical competencies and a strong commitment to professional development," Stefano said in a statement."We look forward to the many contributions Nick will bring to the organization in his new role."
Cerciello joined the department about eight years ago after stints at the Ventura County Fire Department, Orange County Fire Authority and the Tustin Federal Fire Department.
