But his service hasn’t only been confined to emergencies. In August, Chief Christopoulos received West Central Behavioral Health’s Lilla McLane-Bradley Award for Mental Health Advocacy. He has worked diligently with state officials and Upper Valley communities to provide the services needed to help people experiencing a mental health crisis or substance-use disorder.
Although he has enjoyed his time in Lebanon, he’s also looking forward to this new season of life. “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Lebanon—both as fire chief and as a member of the community. I am extremely proud of the men and women of the Lebanon Fire Department. I will certainly miss them and many friends. After 40 years in the fire and emergency services, I am looking forward to this new opportunity,” Chief Christopoulos says.
After his retirement, Chief Christopoulos will move to Florida to take a fire safety position in the private sector. He’ll be missed, but we wish him well and thank him for his decades of service to the city of Lebanon.
