MONETA (WSLS) – Elections were held Wednesday to decide who will replace current Scruggs volunteer Fire Chief Slim Crawford.
Dempsey Moore is expected to take over as the leader of a department that has nearly fifty volunteer firefighters.
The main goal moving forward is to recruit more volunteers.
Crawford has been with the department 41 years. Dempsey has been a volunteer for 17 years.
A special retirement celebration is planned at Scruggs Volunteer Fire and Rescue Saturday.
