Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller on Monday named Paul Dow to serve as fire chief of the Albuquerque Fire Department pending confirmation by the City Council.

Sean Frazier will serve as an assistant fire chief, Keller said in a news release.

“Chief Dow and Chief Frazier will lead the Albuquerque Fire Department with steady hands to help keep our city safe,” Keller said in a statement. “Our Firefighters and EMTs work day in and day out to fight fires and provide emergency medical services in a wide range of situations.”

Dow has served with AFD for 18 years, most recently as a battalion commander, and he has worked as a fire science instructor at Central New Mexico Community College for the past 11 years, according to the statement.

Frazier has served as battalion commander with AFD for the past three years and has been with department for 21 years.

“Chief Dow and Chief Frazier have each served the people of Albuquerque for two decades. They bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to effectively save lives across our city, while making sure our first responders have the resources they need to stay safe,” Keller said.
