Brandon Thueson

Brandon Thueson - Division Chief - Fire Prevention

I am excited to be serving Klamath County Fire District No. 1 as Division Chief - Fire Prevention. I have 21 years of experience in the fire service and have served in many capacities throughout my career, including working on ambulances, apparatus driver and station captain. During my service as a Fire Marshal in the state of Utah, I served as the president of the Fire Marshals Association of Utah, assisted in the development of the state's Fire Investigator 1 and Fire Inspector 1 curriculums, and was an Adjunct Instructor for the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy. I have an Associate's Degree in Fire Science from Utah Valley University and graduated with honors. I am a certified fire and explosion investigator and have investigated hundreds of fires ranging from grass fires to large commercial property fires. In 2016 I attended the Weber State Police Academy and became a certified Special Functions Officer within the state of Utah and was the first fire marshal in Weber County to be law enforcement qualified. When not working, I enjoy spending time with family, hiking and camping. I look forward to meeting and working with everyone and becoming a part of the community.
