Glendale Fire Chief Greg Fish has announced his retirement after a successful 31-year public safety career with the City of Glendale.
Over the years, Chief Fish has made it a priority to ensure the safety of the Glendale community. Chief Fish has been the incident commander on many significant emergencies and has built long-lasting relationships in the City. He is credited with implementing a comprehensive training video series for the cities of Glendale, Burbank, and Pasadena.
Chief Fish had the privilege of leading 270 sworn and non-sworn personnel and has taken great pride in maintaining a Class 1 Fire Department. “It has been an honor to lead such a dedicated team of men and women whose first priority has always been to serve the community,” said Chief Fish as he reflected on his years of service. As the fourth-largest city in Los Angeles County, the Glendale Fire Department serves an area of 30.7 square miles that is home to about 205,000 residents. The department responds to over 19,000 incidents within the City and other nearby jurisdictions.
Chief Fish will continue to lead the department until September 28, 2018. “I congratulate Chief Fish on his decades of service to the community,” said City Manager Yasmin Beers. “He is a local success story dedicated to his community. He will be sorely missed and will be difficult to replace.”
