St. Johns County Fire Chief Sean McGee

On March 19, 2024 the St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) unanimously approved Sean McGee as the new Fire Chief of St. Johns County Fire Rescue.

During the presentation of her request of the BOCC to confirm McGee, County Administrator Joy Andrews said, “Sean McGee puts the safety of his team and the community before himself. My family feels safer in St. Johns County because of him, his leadership and the team he has assembled.” Andrews shared that McGee’s leadership within the department and throughout the community superseded the original plan to use a national search for fire chief candidates.
