The city’s Fire/EMS Department has a new deputy chief at its helm, but he is not a new face. Deputy Chief Chris Judy began his new role Jan. 2, after the retirement of longtime Deputy Chief Jack Manley. Deputy Chief Judy was promoted from captain, and said he had spent his entire 29-year career with the Morehead City Fire/EMS Department. “It’s a pretty big honor,” he told the News-Times Thursday, one week after assuming his position as deputy chief. “…So far, things have been pretty good. The previous deputy chief left us in a really good place. He’d done a great job so it made the transition very smooth for me.” Deputy Chief Judy said the promotion represents a change in his job duties, but he feels he is adjusting well to the new role.
