WPHOC Reviews – Lyman, Richard

Member : Lyman, Richard
Title: White Plains Fire Chief

Richard Lyman:
Chief Richard Lyman has been on the job as Chief for some time and has been a member of the WP Fire Dept. for many years. Under the Chiefs watch WP residents enjoy one of the lowest Fire Call rates in NY State.


1) Chief Lyman runs a very efficient Department with fine men and woman under his supervision. WP residents can certainly be proud of our WP Fire Dept. and their outstanding record.

2) The Chief overseas an excellent Fire Safety and Multi-Family Home inspection operation. These WPFD inspection program hours should be expanded and the minimum units available for inspection should be 2 family instead of the current 4 family minimum unit inspection criteria.


1) Chief Lyman needs to be more accessible to the public and make sure everyone knows how to reach him and his team of inspectors.

2) The Chief needs to be more public since a large portion of our residents don´t even know we have a Fire Chief in this community.

Mayor Roach and WP Public Safety Commissioner Chong are the ones who need to put Chief Lyman out in front of the public. It is clear to some of us that the WP Fire Dept. is at times the red headed step child down at WP Public Safety.
It is time the WP Fire Dept. and Chief Lyman had more to say about their own operations.
