I heard today that Dewey Woody is resigning from Fire Chief for Bradley County. I also heard that Brent Bowles was who Mayor Davis is going to appoint for that position. I'm really concerned with this choice! Brent Bowles is not dedicated and I believe a Fire Chief should be dedicated! Brent's Wife and children are moving to Atlanta, GA so how does he plan on being dedicated as Fire Chief with his family living in Atlanta? I seriously believe that Brent is NOT the man for the job and Mayor Davis needs to reconsider this decision. I also know that when the tornados hit our town, Brent stayed home and was not out with the other dedicated Bradley County Firemen. If you are going to have a position in Emergency Services, you need to respond when an Emergency happens! Brent Bowles as Firechief is a BAD IDEA!

I heard Ben Atchley was looking at the job and has been calling commissioners all day. That would be a mistake if they hired him. He has tried everything and everywhere to get a position. The Fire Department needs help from someone who can relate to the members volunteers and full time. There has to be someone in this county that is not with the department, who is qualified. They do not need to hire someone from the inside and they need to get away from the good old boys.

Thank goodness Dewey is gone. They have had so many problems with Dewey over the last 12 years. He has run off Volunteers, and have lost good qualified Full time people. The county can not survive without Volunteers. They think they can, but it will cost money, they do not have. I hope they find a qualified person, instead of a good old boy. They have suffered for 12 years under the Woody Arrogance now maybe they can have a better working relationship with the rest of the departments. This is a Fire Department not a police department like Woody has a background in.

Woody ran off two really good fire fighters one for refusing to follow orders that were in direct violation of city policy and the other for reporting his coworker for sexual explicit pictures being sent to a female fire fighter against her will. She was lesbian and he was determined he could "fix her" when the co-worker reported the incident they were asked to resign. It's a shame what he did to our city during his reign.

So, when are they going to appoint a fire chief. These guys need leadership. Is this Brent Bowles the chief or who is the permanent chief. We need one bad. This is crazy.

They just need to get the "good old boys" out of the mix. This county has so many lawsuits and will continue to get these until they get people in positions that know how to run a department. What is the latest bcfd about "fix her".
