RyanFireMarshalNo stranger to Old River-Winfree (he is a regular participant in Old River-Winfree Founders Day), Ryan Holzaepfel, announces updates as Fire Marshal in cooperation with the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office now under the direction and leadership of Sheriff Brian Hawthorne.

Looking to the Future

In cooperation with Sheriff Hawthorne, we are excited to be putting together an Arson and Fire Investigation team in Chambers County.  It will be composed of officers from the Chambers County Fire Marshal’s Office and Chambers County Sheriff’s Office.  The primary goal of the team will be to investigate the cause and origin of home and structure fires in Chambers County.  Not all fires are intentional, and for safety reasons it is important for the County to identify causes and patterns of home fires.  We hope that by doing this we can reduce the risk of fire and injury for the citizens of Chambers County.  We hope to have the team fully operational by this summer.
