New Interim Fire Chief Named In Whitewright

Posted:

WHITEWRIGHT, TX -- A new interim chief has been named for the Whitewright Fire Department.

Leonard resident Jake Reynolds, who works as a Whitewright EMS paramedic and a Bonham firefighter-paramedic is running the department as of Jan. 7, Mayor Bill Goodson said.

The city voted to cut ties with its volunteer fire department at a council meeting last week. Goodson says applications are coming in from new and former volunteers to be a part of the re-constituted fire department. The deadline to apply for chief is on Feb. 14.
