Christopher Herrmann is a Firefighter on Truck Co. 81 and one of the main characters of Chicago Fire.


Herrmann is a self-described "general entrepeneur" when off-shift with a poor sense of business: he was scammed by both predatory mortgage lenders and consequently lost his house to foreclosure. Then he lost $1,000 in an "energy water" sales pyramid scheme. Currently he, Otis, and Gabriela Dawson have partnered together on a bar called Molly's.


Herrmann is married to Cindy and has got five children. They live with his wife's parents due to the foreclosure on their house.

Season 1Edit

In the first episode Herman is severly injured when a floor colapses dropping him and Matthew Casey down from the 3rd floor. His electronic PASS device begins to go off, alerting the other firefighters to the fact that he hasn't moved in 18 seconds. In the season 1 finale he and the team go to a fire at a prison where he is held hostage at knife point by one of the inmates. During this time his wife, Cindy, is in labour with his fifth child, a boy named Kenny James Herrmann.
