Veteran firefighter Bill Weiser was appointed as the new Riverside County Fire Chief. The Riverside County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the appointment on Tuesday after Cal Fire assigned Weiser to the position on Monday.
“We are very pleased to welcome Bill Weiser as our new Riverside County Fire Chief,” said Riverside County Board Chair V. Manuel Perez. “Chief Weiser brings great experience in the fire service to lead the Riverside County Fire Department in this crucial role.”
Weiser has more than 39 years of experience in the fire service, including more than 34 years in Riverside County. Over the years, Weiser has filled several key positions in the Cal Fire/Riverside Unit, including as the training captain at Ben Clark Training Center and battalion chief for the Perris Battalion. His most recent position was division chief overseeing operations in Bautista Camp, Hemet Ryan Air Base, the San Jacinto and Mountain Battalions as well as the hazardous materials emergency response program.
“I’ve known Chief Weiser starting way back in my volunteer fire service days and I believe he will be a great chief for our entire county and contract cities,” said First District Supervisor Kevin Jeffries.
Weiser said he is honored to be appointed Riverside County Fire Chief and looks forward to serving as county fire chief in one of the most dynamic counties in America.
