Career timeline for Chief Hurt
COLLEGE STATION The interim fire chief for the City of College Station has had "interim" dropped from his title.
Eric Hurt, a 32-year veteran of the College Station Fire Department, had his promotion to the chief's role announced Tuesday. He has been the interim since June when R.B. Alley departed.
“It’s truly an honor to be selected to lead a group as fine as the College Station Fire Department,” Hurt said in a release by the city.
Hurt began at CSFD in 1981 as a firefighter and EMT. He has held a variety of positions within the department, and also served as a part-time faculty member at Blinn College for 13 years. Before taking over as interim chief, Hurt had been serving as an assistant chief and fire marshal since 2003.
“Chief Hurt is a career professional in the fire services industry who has held almost every position in our fire department with distinction,” City Manager Kelly Templin said in the city's announcement. “He’s the right person to oversee such a critical city function during this time of rapid growth in College Station and at Texas A&M. The long-established relationships he holds within Brazos County’s public safety community ensure a high level of continuity for CSFD.”
