City Names New Fire Chief PDF E-mail

Chris BarnChris Barnettett, who has served with the West Carrollton Fire Department since 1976, was recently named fire chief.

Barnett, a fire captain in West Carrollton since 1990, served as the interim fire chief after former Chief Jack Keister retired in July 2013.

The Ohio Fire Chiefs’ Association assisted with the city’s search process that netted 22 applicants. “We interviewed several well-qualified applicants,” said Brad Townsend, city manager. Townsend said it was important to conduct a thorough search process and make sure that the city got the best person for the job.  “We are convinced that Chris’s long-time knowledge of the community and department will continue to serve the city well,” Townsend said.

Barnett has a bachelor’s degree from Capital University and a master’s degree from the University of Dayton. In 2012, he completed the four-year Executive Fire Officer Program through the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Fire Academy.  The program, administered through the National Emergency Training Center of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, provides executive development and leadership, as well as risk analysis and reduction training.
