Hello, My name is Jason Whiting, serving Raleigh County as Fire Levy Coordinator.
Thank you for visiting our website. I will be periodically making updates to keep the citizens of Raleigh County informed on the progress the fire departments are making with the help of the Raleigh County Fire Levy.
I began my career in emergency services in June 1992 when I became a volunteer firefighter for Beaver VFD where I served in many capacities. During my 27 years there, I achieved the rank of Deputy Fire Chief. In February 2004, I was hired to serve and protect our capitol city as a Firefighter/Paramedic for Charleston Fire Department. I have worked my way up through the ranks achieving the rank of Captain, with the last 2 years serving as Paramedic Shift Supervisor.
During my career I have completed many classes and certifications including EMT-Basic in 1996 and Paramedic in 1999, Hazardous Materials Technician, Vehicle Rescue Technician, National Pro-Board Certified Fire Officer 1 & 2, NIMS, WVU/RESA State Fire Instructor, along with many others. I also achieved the Journeyman Firefighter certification through the US Department of Labor. I was an original member of the West Virginia Regional Response Team established post 9-11-01.
Prior to entering the emergency service field, I graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School and attended Southern WV Community and Technical College. I have been a lifelong resident of Raleigh County currently residing in Piney View with my wife, Rachel of 30 years and my daughter, Daniella.
I look forward to assisting the fire departments of Raleigh County in making the fire service something that the citizens of Raleigh County can be proud of for many years to come.
