Merged fire departments discussion put on ice

County fire board chairman says requests to meet with city officials went nowhere

By BEN CARLSON

Those hoping to see the city and county fire departments merge can kiss that idea goodbye.

“Is it dead? From our perspective, no,” said Johnny Walls, chairman of the Anderson County Fire Protection District’s board of directors. “But if the city wants to stop the whole issue, that’s fine. We won’t push it.”

Walls reacted Monday to comments in last week’s edition of The Anderson News in which city fire chief Bobby Hume and city council member Ken Evans threw cold water on the notion of a merger.
