Ángel Crespo

Safety & Security Advisor

Ángel A. Crespo-Ortiz is a Safety, Security and Emergency Management consultant with a growing private practice. Crespo developed his expertise by being the standard for a new generation of fire chiefs and emergency managers. He has over 20 years of experience in public service and has passed through every step within the Puerto Rico Fire Department (PRFD) rank system, becoming state fire chief in 2013. Under Crespo’s command, the PRFD was the first in public opinion among local state agencies in the island. Crespo’s main concern was the complete transformation of the PRFD, implementing a reform package that entirely improved the agency’s performance.

Crespo’s innovative reform included empowering firefighters to take charge of theirs stations; therefore, 96 fire stations were remodeled and a new training facility meeting NFPA standards was built by the firefighter’s own initiative, encouraged by Crespo, creating a closer bond among them and establishing a sense of pride among the firefighter corps.
