Fire Chief Retires after 12 Years of Service


BOULDER CITY – Boulder City Fire Chief Kevin Nicholson announced this morning that he is retiring, effective immediately. He spent 12 years leading the department.

Amongst some of his accomplishments, he led a department with more than 40 employees and established an Office of Emergency Management under the Fire Department umbrella. “Chief Nicholson has been actively involved in Boulder City activities since becoming Chief here,” said Al Noyola, City Manager. “We appreciate his service and wish him the best in his endeavors.”

Boulder City Fire provides service to an area of approximately 250 square miles. The department is staffed with one engine and two rescue units 24/7. “I’ve been blessed to work with dedicated, brave men and women at the Boulder City Fire Department,” Chief Nicholson said. “The people in this community have been good to me and my family, and I am proud to call Boulder City home.”

Boulder City is utilizing Management Partners, a municipal consulting service agency to bring in an interim Chief.  Steve G. Walton will serve as the interim Fire Chief. “Steve brings 34 years of experience and great leadership qualities,” said Noyola. “He has served as Division Chief in the City of Henderson, holds State and Regulatory Agency certifications and taught fire science courses at College of Southern Nevada. I look forward to his efforts leading the department as we start the search for a new Chief.”
