News Release
Gresham Is Excited To Announce Scott Lewis As the Permanent Chief for Gresham Fire Department - 10/05/22

GRESHAM, Ore. – The City of Gresham is excited to announce Scott Lewis as the permanent Chief of the Gresham Fire Department. Chief Lewis joined the Gresham Fire Department in January 2003, and he has been serving as the Gresham Fire Department Interim Chief for the past six months.  

“Scott Lewis has been an integral part of the Gresham Fire Department for nearly 20 years,” said Deputy City Manager Corey Falls. “We are grateful for the thoughtful leadership, integrity, and selfless commitment Chief Lewis brings to this community.”  

Chief Lewis began his career in his hometown of Fairborn, Ohio. He served the Fairborn Fire Department for 20 years, in time rising to the role of Operations Deputy Chief. The pursuit of career growth and the opportunities a larger department can offer initially drew him to the City of Gresham. Since joining the Gresham Fire Department, Chief Lewis has held a variety of roles including Operations Deputy Chief, Administrative Division Chief, and Assistant Chief.  

I am humbled to have the opportunity to be the Fire Chief for the Gresham Fire Department,” said Fire Chief Scott Lewis. “We have assembled one of the finest groups of firefighters, fire officers, deputy fire marshals, and staff members in the State of Oregon. Every day they serve with courage and compassion, and it is a privilege to work alongside them.”  

Though it is not a requirement of the position, it is important to Chief Lewis to live in the community he serves. Chief Lewis and his wife, Linda, and their Lhasa Apso Lucy have happily called Gresham their home for 20 years now and we are pleased that they will continue to do so.
