09/23/08 128 W, 7 I - + 15 - 9 Charleston Fire Chief Hopefuls

The Charleston Post and Courier reviews the seven finalists for Fire Chief in this article today. One is a familiar face from Wake County, our former Public Safety Director. The seven spent Monday meeting with city council members, community leaders, and firefighters. The finalists were announced last week, and are being discussed and dissected on Venting The Roof. That's a new web site covering the Carolinas, and from the Firefighter Hourly guy. No punches are being pulled on VTR. And that's not a surprise, given the passions and interest surrounding the Charleston Fire Department. Welcome to the Web 2.0 age, where every Internet reader can add their two cents and then some.

Some of those same people are being discussed on TWD by people from their former/current departments. Just like about anything else on TWD, anything goes… in terms of punches being thrown. One of those (former) Chiefs has been the target of many disgruntled posters. I wish Charleston the best of luck in their search!

Tom Carr got hired? WOW. I can’t believe he is leaving Monky Co for a much much smaller Charleston FD. Well then again he only has a few years till retirement and his parents live in Charleston. Good luck to him. I know that he has made some good changes in Monkey Co.
