Battalion Chief Jim Rampton

Battalion Chief Jim Rampton

Beginning my career in 1986 I have served with several fire departments and worked my way through the ranks including Firefighter/EMT, Captain, Battalion Chief, Division Chief and retired in Utah as the Fire Chief of the South Davis MetroFire Agency. I am very involved by working on committees within the fire service as well as fire service associations, including the International Association of Fire Chiefs (Western Division and EMS section), California Fire Chiefs, NFPA and most recently served as the President of the Utah State Fire Chiefs. I hold many certifications including Advanced EMT, Firefighter, Fire Officer, Inspector and Instructor.

I am a third generation Firefighter with a family history of over 90 years in the fire service. I have now found my dream job working as a Battalion Chief for the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire District, overseeing Operations and Emergency Medical Services.
