Glendale’s Fire Chief Announces Retirement

Glendale is preparing to say goodbye to a public safety executive who has called city government home for more than 30 years.

Fire Chief Greg Fish has announced his retirement effective Sept. 28, three years after he assumed the top post at Glendale Fire.

“He is a local success story dedicated to his community,” said City Manager Yasmin Beers. “He will be sorely missed and will be difficult to replace."

The city has chosen two people to serve as interim replacements. Deputy Chief Bill Lynch will assume fire chief duties from Sept. 29 through Nov. 30. Deputy Chief Silvio Lanzas will occupy the post from Dec. 1 to Jan. 31.
