City of Newnan Announces New Fire Chief

City Manager Phillips announced today that Stephen Brown has been promoted to lead
the City of Newnan Fire Department effective March 8, 2018.

A 23-year veteran of the department whose last position was Battalion Chief, Brown succeeds former Fire Chief David Whitley.

“Chief Brown has earned his new position with his leadership and dedication throughout his 23 years of service as a City of Newnan firefighter,” said City Manager Cleatus Phillips.

“He has displayed a very professional approach and outlined a vision for the department that is very consistent with the overall vision of the Council and the City Manager’s Office. Simply put, Brown plans to listen, to involve the men and women of the department in process and planning efforts, to be active within our community, and to be active within the fire industry promoting opportunities for both the industry and our department. Please join me in welcoming Chief Brown to his new position. I see great things ahead for our community and the City of Newnan Fire Department.”
