Chip Duncan
Chief, Newport Beach Fire Department

Chip Duncan began his career in 1986 as a seasonal firefighter for the California Department of Forestry (Cal-Fire). He is a 31-year veteran of the fire service, with 30 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.

Chief Duncan is our first Fire Chief promoted from within in the last 28 years! He oversees Fire Operations, Emergency Medical Services, Marine Operations, and Community Education (including the fire department’s CERT program). He understands and appreciates the unique challenges of managing emergencies in the all-risk environment. He is grateful for the opportunity to lead a Department steeped in tradition, filled with history, and vested in the community it serves. Furthermore, he will continually look to maintain and improve best in class service delivery for those who live in and visit our beautiful city.
