Einar Jensen, public information officer with Evergreen Fire/Rescue, resigned Aug. 5 to take a new job as a full-time life-safety educator with the newly formed Parker-South Metro Fire Rescue Authority in Centennial. Jensen will be based in the Parker office.

Jensen has been with the Evergreen fire department since September 2003. His last day will be Aug. 12, Jensen told the Canyon Courier.

Jensen maintained roles as life-safety educator, public information officer and fire inspector during his tenure with the Evergreen fire department. He will continue to live in Clear Creek County.

A replacement has not been named.

“I am extremely grateful to Evergreen,” Jensen said. “They helped me find my calling. I will be indebted to them forever.”

Jensen also expressed thanks to the Evergreen community.

Jensen’s new job will not include fire inspector or public information duties.

Parker-South Metro Fire Rescue was formed in May by the merger of the South Metro Fire Authority and the Parker Fire Protection District.

The combined department covers 76 square miles of Arapahoe and Douglas counties, the Denver Tech Center, Park Meadows, Cherry Hills Village, Greenwood Village, Lone Tree and portions of the city of Centennial. The district has 200,000 residents.
