PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Clark County Fire District 6 announced the selection of their new fire chief on Thursday.
Kristan Maurer is the brand new chief, but she is not new to Fire District 6. She began as an entry-level firefighter 20 years ago and has since worked her way up through nearly every possible position at District 6.
She is one of only 50 female fire chiefs across the nation. Newly appointed Fire Chief of Portland Fire and Rescue, Sara Boone, is also among the few.
Chief Maurer will work with the current chief, Jerry Green, for a smooth transition.
