The Administrative Control Board of the Park City Fire District joins the District and the community in mourning the loss of our Fire Chief, Paul Hewitt, at the age of 58. Chief Hewitt came to the Park City Fire District in 2011 after spending 20 years with the Salt Lake City Fire Department, where he served with great dedication.
During Chief Hewitt’s tenure at the Park City Fire District, he created a strong leadership team and gained the community’s trust and admiration. Chief Hewitt was often present at many community events and participated in the Rotary Club of Park City. He was a leader by example but was always part of the team. There was nothing he asked his firefighters to do that he would not do himself. Under his leadership, the District purchased land and constructed a new fleet services building, implemented validated physical fitness standards, and contributed quarterly articles to Utah Fire and Rescue Academy’s Straight Tip magazine.
Due to his outstanding leadership and succession planning, the Administrative Control Board is confident the Park City Fire District and its community is in good hands under the leadership of Chief Bob Zanetti. Chief Hewitt had a passion for the fire service. Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of this great man.
