Boulder City has announced that it has a new fire chief.

William Gray has 25 years of experience. He has served as a firefighter, fire medic, emergency medical officer, training officer, operations captain, and as an assistant fire chief. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Fire Administration from Columbia Southern University in Orange Beach, Alabama. His first day on the job in Boulder City was Jan. 27.

As Assistant Fire Chief for the Pueblo Fire Department (Colorado), he led and managed ten fire stations, served as incident commander for major incidents, served as the special operations chief, and was a member of the department command staff. He also served as the dispatch liaison with the Pueblo Police Department Communication Center and led the diversity recruitment team.

“I believe Chief Gray will help Boulder City better achieve one of the strategic goals set in 2018, to “Sustain a High Level of Public Safety Services,” said Al Noyola, City Manager of Boulder City. “Of particular interest and value is his experience as a Peer Team Leader for the Commission for Fire Accreditation International, whereby he assisted in evaluation of fire departments of different sizes and compositions nationally and internationally.”
