[ARCHIVED] League City Fire Chief Retires

fire chief retires

After serving the City of League City for 7 years and a career of 40 years, League City Fire Chief Gary Warren is retiring Friday, July 30.  During his tenure with the City, Chief Warren made a significant impact by making the fire department stronger, reducing response times, and increasing volunteer numbers to their highest levels. Some of his major accomplishments include: 

  • Developing a stipend program to add a day and night crew using our own volunteer firefighters.  This program provides the City with at least one fire crew on duty 20 hours a day.
  • Advocating to increase firefighter pension contribution to improve retention rates in the department
  • Obtaining an ISO 1 recommendation for fire insurance premium calculations, saving residents on fire insurance premiums.  
  • Leading the effort for the design and construction of Fire Station 6 in the Hidden Lakes area improving fire coverage in the southeast portion of League City
  • Developing a program to systematically update the fire and EMS fleet with several new ambulances, fire pumper and fire ladder trucks.
  • Adding a cancer insurance policy for firefighters
  • Securing hundreds of thousands of dollars of grants for Fire, EMS and Fire Prevention including a grant for the City’s new all hazard fire boat

Staff members and volunteer firefighters gathered on Thursday to celebrate Chief Warren’s accomplishments and give him a warm farewell. The City of League City would like to thank him for his numerous contributions to the City and wish him a happy retirement. Michael Lugo will take on the role as the new League City Fire Chief next week.
