Yellowstone Welcomes New Safety Manager

Yellowstone National Park is pleased to welcome Brandon Lipke as the park's new Safety Manager. He will be responsible for managing all aspects of National Park Service employee safety on the job.

He comes to Yellowstone from Mount Rainier National Park in Washington State, where he served as the Safety Manager from 2009-2012.

Brandon is originally from Fort Scott, Kansas. He spent eight years in the U.S. Coast Guard, worked for a time in the private sector, and also worked for the Federal Bureau of Prisons before joining the National Park Service.

Brandon graduated with honors from Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Technology with an emphasis on Safety Management.

Brandon, his wife Terri, daughter Krystyn, and their three dogs now call Mammoth Hot Springs home.
