John Erichsen"John C. Erichsen has extensive knowledge of - and first-hand experience in - designing, delivering, and administering fire protection, emergency services, incident management and health and safety programs. Currently serving the University of Texas in Arlington as Director, Center for Fire & Safety, Division for Enterprise Development, Mr. Erichsen created the Center’s Fire and Safety instructional program and developed its landmark curriculum. Highly respected by both students and academia for his invaluable expertise, Mr. Erichsen has now expanded his credentials to include global speaker and presenter. Routinely asked to share his wealth of experience with audiences throughout the nation and the world, Mr. Erichsen considers these requests an honor, one which he enthusiastically accepts. Mr. Erichsen joined the University’s academic team in 2013, after serving the United States Department of the Army Fire Protection for 40 years, culminating in the Pentagon-level position of Director, Army Fire and Emergency Services Department, a position for which he was recruited. At the Pentagon, Mr. Erichsen filled a 2-year vacancy, a challenge he met with veracity. He pioneered a department-wide restructuring that improved programming and strengthened financial stability, rendering improvements across all 135 U.S. Army installation fire and emergency services. In so doing, he achieved a global “right-size initiative” in concert with directives handed down from the President of the United States, modernized resources, delivered funding programs, and developed policies and procedures that benchmarked global operating efficiencies and optimized cost containment. With a keen eye to technology, he augmented the transfer of military tracking technology into the civilian firefighting arena. Having initiated his career as a fire chief in New Jersey, Mr. Erichsen incorporated military-engineered technology and fire management principles into an existing fire protection and emergency services infrastructure, resulting in an award-winning, high-tech, and safety-compliant organization. Today, Mr. Erichsen continues to remain on the cutting edge of emerging fire protection trends and technology. With extensive professional credentials and commendations, and as a member of the International Association of Fire Chiefs, Mr. Erichsen is an authority on a myriad of subjects related to fire protection, incident management, emergency services, and health and safety initiatives."
