Vincel, a longtime member of the department with almost three decades of experience, worked his way up through the ranks over the years, starting as a firefighter and working other posts including fire inspector, deputy fire marshal and fire marshal, according to the department’s website.

Vincel holds an associate’s degree in fire science from Red Rocks Community College and a bachelor’s degree of fire service administration from Metropolitan State University of Denver, according to his website biography. He’s currently working on a master’s degree at Colorado State University.
