Following a 34-year career in the fire service, City of San Luis Obispo Fire Chief Keith Aggson has announced plans to retire in November. He has had an illustrious career on the Central Coast, working in the communities of Atascadero, Templeton, and Paso Robles before he began leading the City of San Luis Obispo Fire Department in 2017.
“When I arrived here, SLO had a great Fire Department. It has been my honor to work with the team to build upon that standard of excellence so we can be even more prepared to meet the changing needs of our community and continue to provide exceptional service,” Aggson said.
Aggson says the fire service has changed significantly over the past three decades, including the types of fires he’s experienced and the technology available to fight them.
