Wake Up! Newport

Teaming Up to Battle the Blaze

""Teaming Up to Battle the Blaze

How fire departments work together to battle the California fires and how Newport Beach is prepared

The devastation of the Woolsey and Camp Fires have brought fire fighters from all over the country to work with one another. Come learn how departments team up, the logistics of combining forces and the challenges presented by fires of this magnitude. Also, learn about Newport Beach and how it is prepared for such tragedies and what you can do to minimize their impact should they occur.

Chip Duncan began his career in 1986 as a seasonal firefighter for the California Department of Forestry (Cal-Fire). He is a 32-year veteran of the fire service, with 31 years serving the Newport Beach Fire Department. During his time here, he has worked as a Firefighter, Fire Paramedic, Fire Captain, Fire Battalion Chief, and Assistant Chief of Fire Operations.
