Pratt eyes improvements in new role as Fire Chief

Hollywood’s new fire chief, Christopher Pratt, says he is ready to move the City forward in his new role.

Pratt was recently named as the new chief of the Hollywood Fire Rescue and Beach Safety Department. He began his career with the department in 1989 as a firefighter.

“For me, it’s a calling,” he said. “I like to help people. I like the feeling of saving lives and property.”

Pratt said he is proud to have been selected to run a large and complex department. “I want to keep up with the latest developments in fire rescue. I want to make sure we have new equipment and that the fire department is well-run. And I hope to see the newer members of the department working well with the older members,” he said.
