Richmond Hill Promotes Captain Brendon Greene as new Fire Chief


The city of Richmond Hill has chosen to name Captain Brendon Greene, a five-year-veteran of the department, as the new fire chief – making Greene just the third chief in 22 years.

The city council voted unanimously to appoint Greene during a short called meeting which followed a lengthy work session on Thursday evening.

Greene will replace Ralph Catlett who retired in December of 2018. Catlett was appointed in 2014 and was a 45-year-veteran in firefighting.

Naming a fire chief was one of the topics discussed during the recent fire fee implementation. It took less than a month for the city to make good on their word.

Chief Greene has dedicated his life to Richmond Hill since moving here from Massachusetts 5 years ago. He created the annual Spring Fling event which raises money to help those in need around Richmond Hill. They hosted their 3rd consecutive event on April 13, 2019.

After moving to Richmond Hill, GA in the fall of 2018, Matt wanted to become immediately involved in the community. Without hesitation, he created the Richmond Hill Community Facebook group which reached 2,700 members in just 5 months. After building this community, he decided they needed an honest, reliable news source to keep them informed. Thus, Richmond Hill 411 was born!
