Mark Scoville has been named as the new division chief for Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department Division 9, which includes the jurisdictions of Menifee and Perris.

Chief Scoville started his career as a volunteer firefighter at the El Cerrito Fire Station in 1994 and has served in several capacities throughout Riverside County. He was promoted to battalion chief of San Jacinto in 2018 and has served the Perris battalion since 2019.

“Chief Scoville brings a wealth of experience to Menifee and I have no doubt that he will continue to lead our fire department with integrity and expertise,” City Manager Armando G. Villa said.

Chief Scoville’s official start date was March 1. “I am extremely grateful to have this opportunity to lead the fire department here in Menifee and remain committed to upholding the highest standards of service,” Chief Scoville said. “I look forward to working collaboratively with city leadership, staff, and the greater Menifee community to help keep our city safe.”

Chief Scoville will relieve Division Chief Lonny Olson, who will be returning to his original jurisdictional area of Division 5. “We appreciate Chief Olson’s hard work and dedication over these last few years ensuring we have the personnel and resources we need to keep our community safe,” Villa said.
