News Release 6-19-14!!
The City of Webster City is happy to announce the appointment of John Conyn to the position of Fire Chief for the City of Webster City. Conyn fills the Fire Chief position which became vacant when Chief Mike Lund retired in June of 2014.
Conyn currently holds the position of Lieutenant Firefighter/Paramedic and Lead Instructor with the City of Racine Wisconsin Fire Department. Conyn has worked for the City of Racine Fire Department since 1990. Prior to his career with the Racine Fire Department he was a Sergeant in the United States Air Force and then spent 7 years as a Firefighter with the Great Lakes Fire Department of North Chicago.
Conyn holds numerous certifications and has had extensive professional development through Wisconsin Technical College, National Fire Academy, National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians, FEMA, National Fire Protection Association, as well as the United States Air Force.
Fire Chief Conyn states, “In my career as a trainer for our regional hazardous material response team, I have had the privilege to train with over 15 volunteer fire departments in a tri-county area. The one thing that stands out to me is the dedication and commitment of the members to serve their respected communities. I have observed over and over, team building in progress for problem solving. There’s a joy on each firefighter’s face offering up their know-how on the topic being taught. In actuality, I feel that as I have taught a skill or concept, I have become the student learning from each firefighter I have met.
I also teach Firefighter I and II which introduces the firefighter to the rigors of the job. I observe them coming to training and eager to learn, even after a full day of work. I find myself in awe and get great inspiration from each firefighter.
In this tradition based organization it is my passion to share the skills and instill confidence with every firefighter I train with. I want them to achieve the highest level of firefighting they aspire to.
I am looking forward to getting to know my new firefighting family and my wife Brenda and I are looking forward to moving to Webster City and becoming an active part of the community.”
