Here is Scott’s bio:
Scott Deaver began his fire protection service with a nationwide fire and life safety consulting firm based out of Chicago. After serving the West Coast office, he joined the Pleasanton Fire Department in 1988 as a Fire Inspector headquartered at Station 1 in downtown Pleasanton. Scott was promoted to Assistant Fire Marshal following the merger with the Livermore Fire Department, formulating the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department in 1996. On July 26, 2008, Scott was promoted to Fire Marshal following a successful “acting” Fire Marshal assignment.
Chief Deaver significantly changed the local fire safety ordinance taking a performance minded approach to fire law and code compliance using his past experiences in application of intent of the code, field experience, and the extensive resources and relationships developed throughout his career. He served as Vice President and President of the Pleasanton City Employee Association prior to inclusion in Local 1974. Scott holds an Associate’s Degree in Electronic Engineering Technology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Management. Scott has held memberships in Northern California Association of Fire Chiefs, National Fire Protection Association, International Code Council, and California Association of Code Enforcement and was active in the Alameda County Arson Task Force.
Scott is looking forward to spending time with his wife, Stacy, adult children Jordan, Eric and 11 year old Weston. Immediate plans include participation in the building of their retirement home in South Dakota and remaining a die-hard fan of the San Francisco Giants and San Francisco 49ers.
