Welcome, Ben, we are so happy you’ve joined our North Lake Tahoe Fire family!

Ben lives in Truckee, California with his wife Arica, and his Australian pup, Emmie. He attended Chico State University and majored in Geography. Ben worked with our Rifle Peak hand crew in 2017 for two years before attending the Butte Fire Academy in 2019.

Soon after finishing the fire academy in 2019, Ben was brought on with the Penn Valley Fire Department for his internship and concurrently attended Paramedic School at NCTI in Roseville, California.

Ben enjoys everything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, and fishing, and loves reading books, anything non-fiction.

We are so glad you’ve joined us Ben and we hope your tenure here is long and rewarding.

Ben Ketron
