PINEDALE, Wyo. — Sublette County Unified Fire formally appointed Mike Straw as the new Battalion Chief for Battalion 5 – Daniel.
Shaw was appointed during a regularly-scheduled training meeting Sept. 19. Batallion Chief Straw will provide primary supervision for the Daniel fire response area and ensure the facilities, apparatus, equipment, and firefighters are prepared to respond to emergency incidents in Sublette County.
The appointment comes in the wake of Battalion Chief Ben Franklin asked to step down after “25 years of tremendous service,” said Fire Chief Shad Cooper. “Chief Franklin plans to remain active and continue to respond as a volunteer firefighter with our organization. With his departure, the fire battalion needed a new leader and Mike Straw was selected as the most qualified and capable candidate for the position. Mike has been a volunteer firefighter with our organization for over eight years. He is fully qualified as a Fire Officer II and A-EMT. Mike will also continue to serve as the Health & Safety Officer for Sublette County Unified Fire in addition to his new responsibilities as Battalion Chief.”
