Newly promoted Junction City Fire Marshal David Nelson is presented with a badge. Nelson’s wife, Jill Elizabeth Nelson, pinned the badge on him during Tuesday’s city commission meeting.

The Junction City Fire Department promoted a new fire marshal this week.

Firefighter and advanced emergency medical technician David Nelson was promoted to the fire marshal position, and was presented with a badge during Tuesday’s Junction City Commissioners meeting.

Junction City Fire Chief Terry Johnson told commissioners that the position’s interview process came down to two candidates who both scored highly.

“We have some very qualified people in Junction City,” Johnson said.

With Nelson’s promotion, Johnson said the reorganization of staff at the fire department — which began a year ago — is now complete.

Nelson is a 17-year veteran of the JCFD. He has credentials in computer-aided management of emergency operations, fire and arson fatality fire scene investigations, fire scene reconstruction and fire inspections.

He is also a member of the Junction City Fire Fighters Association, the Junction City Relief Association, the Kansas State Relief Association, the Firefighters Aid Association, and is a commander in the JCFD Honor Guard.

Nelson participates in community efforts, as he is a member of the Geared Up Dads Advisory Committee, a Junction City High School wrestling coach and a Kansas State High School Athletic Association official.
