Struble named Routt County emergency management director

— Longtime Steamboat Springs firefighter Bob Struble has been appointed Routt County’s emergency management director, county officials announced Monday. Struble, assistant fire chief with Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue, was chosen from a pool of 57 applicants.

The county’s emergency management director is responsible for development and implementation of Routt County’s emergency preparedness program, and participates in hazard identification and mitigation, and emergency and disaster response, recovery and management, according to the position’s job description.

Former Emergency Management Director Chuck Vale vacated the position in early January to take a state-level job with the Colorado Division of Emergency Management.

Struble became a volunteer Steamboat Springs firefighter 29 years ago. He became an employee of the city 20 years ago.
