Supervisors to review request for a fire marshal

by Audrey Thomasson

LANCASTER—Lancaster supervisors last week tabled a request to appoint a fire marshal to the county’s Emergency Management Services Department.

EMS Chief Terry McGregor asked for the appointment based on what he said was a request by the volunteer fire departments two years ago.

“An investigation is required for all fires,” said McGregor. He noted it would be the job of the fire marshal to do that investigation and recommended one of the paid rescue squad employees from his department for the position.

“Skip Hall has the required training. The request requires no funding and no additional training. He is the fire inspector for King William County,” said McGregor.
