Gov. Jerry Brown has reappointed Anne Walker, 53, of Rescue to a four-year term on the California State Board of Fire Services.
Walker has been serving on the board since last October when she was appointed to fill a vacancy.
The Fire Districts Association of California is a non-profit organization representing the interests of fire districts. The 17-member board oversees all the fire districts of the state, creating a curriculum to teach firefighters how to do their job more effectively and accrediting training programs. The board deals with both firefighting personnel and firefighter unions. It also acts as an advisory body for the chairman of the board, state Fire Marshal Tonya Hoover.
Walker said the association is currently working on updating and standardizing the curriculum for firefighters so it conforms with local and national standards.
Walker has been an administrative assistant at Silva Valley Elementary School since 2012. She was a substitute teacher and secretary at the El Dorado Office of Education from 1993 to 2012 and held multiple positions at the East Whittier School District from 1984 to 1992, including as a teacher and substitute teacher.
She is currently a member of the Rescue Fire Protection District Board of Directors where she has served for 10 years. Her husband is a deputy chief with Cal Fire.
Walker receives no compensation for serving on the board.
