When Birmingham’s new Fire Chief takes over, he will inherit a number of issues facing the department. Mayor Randall Woodfin appointed long-time firefighter Corey Moon to take over as chief in February. William Lipscomb President of the 117th Fire Fighters Union said he is a good choice
"I know Corey. I’ve known Corey for a long time. Corey is a good guy. Corey has a lot of integrity. Professionalism,” Lipscomb said. “Having someone that comes in and be fair, be honest, treat the people, the personnel right. Do the right thing is more important than characterizing outside or inside,” Lipscomb said.
Moon takes over in February. He will shadow the interim chief until then.
