Emergency Preparedness: Perspectives From a Lifelong First-Responder by Kelly Burns

March 5 @ 7:00 pm


FREE ADMISSION – 1757 Ashland St., Ashland, OR. One mile west of I-5 Exit 14

Learn about emergency preparedness for local and regional disasters. Hear first-hand stories and experiences from Kelly’s long history as a responder with Ashland Fire and Rescue in Southern Oregon.

Kelly Burns was hired as the Emergency Management Coordinator for the City of Ashland, Oregon in February, 2023. Kelly formerly worked as a Battalion Chief/EMT-Paramedic for the City of Ashland with Ashland Fire & Rescue for over 31 years. He began his public service career in June of 1990 in the fire service, which was thought to be “temporary.” During his service with AF&R, Kelly was the initial incident commander for the September 2020 Almeda Wildfire disaster.

Kelly is active in all four seasons, including Oregon’s newest fifth season, “Smoke Season,” and is the father of two complicated, yet incredibly smart and talented, teenage daughters whom he loves to a fault.
