Beverly Hills Fire Chief Greg Barton was awarded “Fire Chief Certification” Tuesday evening by California State Fire Marshal Dennis Mathisen at the City Council meeting, an honor that has been awarded to only a few fire chiefs throughout the state since 1998.

The State Board of Fire Services established the certification as the capstone of the State’s professional certification and qualification system after a study, conducted in the 1990s by the Office of the State Fire Marshal and the League of California Cities.
