GALVESTON, TX (December 13, 2013) – This week Galveston Fire Department Captain Charles Olsen was selected to fill the position of Assistant Fire Chief. Assistant Chief Olsen will begin his new assignment on Tuesday, December 17, 2013.

Assistant Chief Olsen has served as a Galveston Firefighter since April 1991.
