Director of Support Services
Chris Krahn began his career with the Washington Township/Avon Fire Department as a volunteer firefighter in 1994. Prior to that he had worked as an Auto Technician at Collins Oldsmobile for 20 years. In 1999, he was hired full time at the fire department and spent the next 19 years as the B-Shift Ladder Chauffeur with WTAFD until retiring from active duty in June 2018 and taking over the Director of Support Services position.
Outside of work, Director Krahn is blessed to have a 36-year marriage with his wife Ginger, 4 great kids, and his dog Hollie. He feels extremely fortunate to have had two careers (20 years each) doing what he loves.
