Brett appointed Chattahoochee Hills fire chief

by Wes Mayer

On March 1, Greg Brett assumed the role of Chattahoochee Hills Acting Fire Chief.

Brett, a resident of the City of Chattahoochee Hills, was appointed to the position when Chattahoochee Hills Fire Chief Ronnie Lyle decided to retire after four years of service. Brett, who became a professional firefighter in 2007 after serving as a fire volunteer for the Chattahoochee Hills Fire Department, has organized and managed the city’s volunteer fire program for the last several years and has a career of service with the Fulton County Fire Department.

“Chattahoochee Hills is fortunate to appoint one of its own in this role and even more fortunate that person is someone who offers so much management experience, personality and devotion to professional fire services,” Lyle said in a prepared statement.

“This is an amazing turn of events in my work career,” Brett said. “I love the public service role of firefighter and emergency medical responder — my commitment to this responsibility with our citizens is more of a ‘calling.’ To lead and direct the provision and quality of these services for our citizens is an honor that I take very seriously.”

Brett’s experience also includes National Proficiency Qualified firefighter training certifications at levels one and two, certifications in National Incident Management Systems and hazardous materials incident responses, and certifications from the Georgia Fire Academy, both the federal and Georgia Emergency Management Agency, Georgia’s Department of Defense and the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. He is also a state licensed EMT and certified CPR instructor.

“Greg Brett is the obvious choice for this job and our city,” said Chattahoochee Hills City Manager Jim Williams.
