Fire Chief Micheal Despain promoted three new Battalion Chiefs to serve. Now there will be two Battalion Chiefs on duty every day. In a news release, LFR says it will benefit the community by dividing the city into two districts for response which promotes a safer environment for firefighters responding on calls and helps increase accountability and training opportunities for our fire force.
A special helmet presentation ceremony will be held Thursday (June 20) at 4;30pm inside the new Fire Station 15 at 6601 Pine Lake Road. Mayor Leirion Gaylor-Baird will be there to make some remarks.
