City Hires Fire Chief

DENTON, TX, Aug. 22, 2014 - City Manager George Campbell has announced the appointment of Robin Paulsgrove to the position of Fire Chief for the City of Denton. Paulsgrove brings nearly 40 years of public service and leadership experience to the City. He will begin his employment on Oct. 13.

Paulsgrove most recently served as Fire Chief and Director of Emergency Management in Arlington from 1997 to 2010.

He is the former Chair of the Metropolitan Fire Chiefs Section of the International Association of Fire Chiefs and former member of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Board of Directors. He is also the author of numerous magazines and articles, including a regular leadership column in the NFPA journal and a chapter in the World Book Encyclopedia on fire departments.

Robin is an exceptional leader who has successfully led cultural and organizational transformations of large urban fire departments,” Mr. Campbell said. “He not only brings outstanding depth and experience to the department and our organization, but also brings a passion for local community leadership. We are excited to welcome Robin to our team.

Paulsgrove stated, “Chief Chadwick and the members of the Denton Fire Department have built a reputation for excellence that is recognized throughout Texas. I am humbled to have been selected for this important assignment and honored to wear the Denton Fire Department uniform. Working together, we will honor our rich traditions while eagerly adjusting course to meet the changing needs of our citizens. The safety of Denton firefighters will be my first priority.”

Kennedy School of Government Program for State and Local Government Leaders. He is also a graduate from the national Fire Academy Executive Fire Officer Program.
