Angie Wiese, P.E., CBO
Angie Wiese is fire safety manager in the city of Saint Paul, Minnesota where she oversees the fire safety inspection program for both new and existing buildings. Previously she served as a fire protection engineer for the city of Saint Paul.
Angie is grateful for the number of mentors she has had over the years who have helped her along her career path. Her predecessor and former Saint Paul Fire Safety Manager Phil Owens as well as former Saint Paul Fire Marshal Steve Zaccard served as major inspirations and sources of guidance throughout her career and time working for the City of Saint Paul.
As a woman in what is a typically male-dominated field, Angie is a role model for young women joining the industry. Her advice to others is to be observant and vocal – “Don’t be afraid to speak up when something doesn’t seem right or if you have knowledge to share.”
In addition to her fire safety manager position and her position on the International Accreditation Service Board of Directors, Angie is also the President of the Fire Marshals Association of Minnesota and a board member of the Fire and Life Safety section of the International Association of Fire Chiefs.
Angie earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University, and a Master of Arts in Public Administration from Hamline University.
