Posted

Residents curious about the community’s fire and emergency medical services in Sun City West can learn a variety of items during an Organization of HOAs presentation.

Arizona Fire & Medical Authority Deputy Chief/Fire Marshal Eric Kriwer from the Community Risk Management Division will be the speaker at OHOA’s seminar 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 15 in the lecture hall at R.H. Johnson Recreation Center, 19803 R.H. Johnson Blvd. His primary topic will be medical emergencies but he will also provide information about the multitude of services the Authority offers the community.

The seminar is open to OHOA members only.

The Arizona Fire and Medical Authority provides assistance to more than 75,0000 Maricopa County residents, including Sun City West. Career firefighters and state certified emergency medical technicians and paramedics are equipped to handle fire, medical and rescue emergencies when necessary. In addition, the Community Risk Management Division of the Authority offers several educational programs to the residents. These include the Ambulance Membership program, the emergency lock box program, and fire station and apparatus tours, which must be scheduled in advance. The Fire and Life Safety Education program provides information to educate residents about fire safety and lifesaving skills for every stage of life.

Kriwer has been in fire service for more than 30 years and has served in a variety of service areas, including firefighter, paramedic, battalion chief, fire marshal, assistant chief and acting fire chief. He began his present position in July 2017.

He holds an associate’s degree in fire science and a bachelor’s degree in business management. He continues to be a member of multiple associations and committees at local, state and national levels. He is a 2011 graduate of the Executive Fire Officer program from the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland, one of two schools in the United States operated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

A member of the Arizona State Fire Training Committee since 2010, Kriwer was credentialed with the Chief Fire Officer Designation by the Center for Public Safety Excellence in 2015. He is the current Arizona State Fire Training Committee executive board co-chairman.
