Fire Technical Services is a function within the Fire Department. Like our Training and Disaster Preparedness functional areas, there is NO STAFF dedicated to Technical Services. Rather this function is managed by existing staff who have other primary functions in the Fire Department.
Technical Services is our term for "stuff" that facilitates our response capability. From fire hose and nozzles, to medical equipment, to fire station supplies, Fire Department staff primarily assigned to Emergency Response partner with staff primarily assigned to Fire Administration to oversee contracts and procurement of supplies and equipment.
Battalion Chief Bob Bisson (C-shift commander) oversees this distribution of work and works very closely with Administrative Analyst James Blattler and Deputy Fire Chief Keith Aggson to develop and administer the goals and objectives of the Technical Services function.
