Jason Erban is a 25-year veteran of public service, to which you are welcome for his service. He began his career as a Paramedic in 1995 before becoming a second-generation Warwick, RI firefighter in 1997. He had the privilege to work in busy, aggressive companies and was taught by bosses who believed you fight fires from the inside of the building. Jason spent many years in an engine company before being promoted to Lieutenant in 2009. Jason served as a Lieutenant on an engine company, ladder tower, and Special Hazards 1, the heavy rescue. He was fortunate to perform collateral duties to include probationary school instructor, live burn instructor, and FEMA grant writer. During his tenure in Warwick, he is most proud of contributing to the acquisition of the Battalion Chief Richard Erban Memorial Training Facility, named after his father, and the creation of the 36-member Technical Rescue Team. After retirement in 2018, he currently serves for the West Hartford CT Fire
