MAYOR WEISNER SELECTS FIRE MARSHAL AS NEXT AURORA FIRE CHIEF

MAYOR WEISNER SELECTS FIRE MARSHAL AS NEXT AURORA FIRE CHIEF

(Aurora, Ill) - Mayor Tom Weisner announced today he is recommending Aurora Fire Marshal Gary Krienitz to replace retiring AFD Chief John Lehman as the next Chief of the Aurora Fire Department.  

Chief John Lehman advised Mayor Weisner several months ago that it was his intention to retire in early 2016, prompting Mayor Weisner to begin an extensive internal selection process that  included peer surveys, management evaluations and multiple rounds of interviews. Mayor Weisner made his recommendation from among six internal candidates.

"I'm very pleased to recommend Gary as our next chief," Weisner said. "His natural leadership qualities, combined with his considerable experience and training, make him a solid choice for chief. Gary's strong record of volunteerism will help to carry on the tradition of the fire chief being an integral part of the Aurora community."

Serving in the Aurora Fire Department for 19 years, Fire Marshal Krienitz began as a paramedic before being promoted to Lieutenant and then Captain. In April 2015, was appointed as Aurora's Fire Marshal.

"When I was in high school at Waubonsie Valley, a friend gave me an opportunity to ride with Medic 4 at Fire Station 4. Little did I know that brief ride-a-long would have such an impact on who I would become," he said. "Now to be considered for the position as the next Chief of the Aurora Fire Department is such a great honor."
