Welcome to Charles Renner-Recruit Firefighter


Please help us in welcoming new Recruit Firefighter Charles Renner. Charles started at the City on September 2nd in our Fire Department. “I have lived in North Pole for nearly all of my life and I love it there. I graduated from Ben Eielson High School where I played football, wrestled, and ran track. I have received my AAS in Municipal Fire Control and I am currently working on my Bachelors of Emergency Management. In my spare time, I enjoy four-wheeling, camping, snowmachining, and when I’m not outdoors, you can probably find me in my garage fixing something.”

Welcome to William Soen-Recruit Firefighter

Please help us in welcoming another new Recruit Firefighter, William Soen. William started at the Fire Department on Sept 3rd. “I was born in Los Angeles County and grew up in Orange County, California. I moved to Fairbanks in 2011 to attend UAF and begin my career in the fire service. Currently, I am pursuing an AAS in both Municipal Fire Control and Paramedicine in congruence with a Bachelor’s in Emergency Management. I am grateful for the opportunities the Interior has given me in the form of higher education and career goals. I am enjoying learning the ins and outs of how to live like an Alaskan.”

Welcome to “JB” Brainerd, Deputy City Attorney

Please help us in welcoming our new Deputy City Attorney, John “JB” Brainerd. JB started with us September 2 at the City Attorney’s Office:

“I moved from Minnesota to Fairbanks with my family when I was 10. After graduating Middlebury College (1988) in Vermont, I moved to San Francisco, CA. While in San Francisco, I graduated Golden Gate University School of Law with my Doctor of Jurisprudence (1999) and Master of Laws in Taxation (2001). I moved back to Fairbanks in June 2005 so I could be closer to family, friends and the great outdoors. I enjoy cycling in the summer and cross-country skiing, snowboarding and snow machining in the winter. When not in the great outdoors, I can be found at home with my family and our three dogs and cat.”
