“I am truly honored and humbled to receive the Fred Cunningham Award,” said Barton. “If you do something you like to do, you’ll never work a day in your life. That is so true, I have a dream job as a firefighter and on top of that, I work for the dream community of Beverly Hills. Thank you all.”

Beverly Hills Fire Chief Greg Barton received the prestigious Fred C. Cunningham award for distinguished service on Jan. 12, the city’s highest recognition for outstanding service to the community. Before being appointed as fire chief in June of 2017, Barton served as Deputy Fire Chief, Shift Battalion Chief, Fire Marshal, Deputy Fire Marshal, Fire Captain, Fire Inspector and Firefighter.

Recently, Chief Barton spearheaded the City’s new “Just in Case, BH,” program, which was created to keep the community informed and connected during natural disasters or local emergencies.

“I am truly honored and humbled to receive the Fred Cunningham Award,” said Barton. “If you do something you like to do, you’ll never work a day in your life. That is so true, I have a dream job as a firefighter and on top of that, I work for the dream community of Beverly Hills. Thank you all.”

Barton has completed prestigious programs like the Naval Post Graduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security-Executive Leaders Program, the Los Angeles Fire Department Leadership Academy and the International Association of Fire Chiefs – Fire Service Executive Development Institute.

“The City Council is so pleased to recognize Chief Barton for his remarkable contributions to our community,” said Mayor Lester Friedman. “During his 25-year career with our City, Greg has been on the front lines working to save lives, property and keep our City safe.  On behalf of the Beverly Hills community, we thank him for his dedicated service and the example he sets for all of us.”

A committee consisting of the City Manager, two current City Council Members, a former City Councilmember, the president of the Municipal League, president of the Rotary Club and the president of the Chamber of Commerce unanimously chose Chief Barton for the award.
