Erin Edwards began her journey into the risk and safety world when she became a firefighter 21 years ago. Erin has worked extensively in the structural, wildland, technical rescue, air crash rescue, hazmat, and medical realms of the fire service. She currently holds the rank of platoon captain in her fire department where she leads a platoon of amazing firefighters. She has worked as both a paid and volunteer firefighter throughout her tenure. 2 of her years in the fire service were spent in Iraq as a contract firefighter with a military contractor providing fire and emergency services to our deployed military service members.
Erin also holds her Certified Risk Managers designation and has worked in the government sector of risk management for 6 years as an analyst and then risk manager. Her education includes a bachelor's degree in criminal justice with an undergraduate certificate in counterintelligence as well as a master's certificate in intelligence studies. In her spare time Erin wrote and self-published a book called "This Is Not A Sports Book" as a no holds barred, tongue in cheek, short, coffee table read born from the many questions she received over the years from her guy friends and fellow firefighters regarding the nuances of women. Erin believes in always learning something new as well as finding places and things in the world to experience and enjoy.
