City Manager Danny Roberts on Monday accepted the resignation of Loganville Fire Department Chief Carl Morrow. The resignation was announced at Thursday’s City Council meeting in Loganville.
“We want to thank Chief Morrow for more than two decades of service to the citizens of Loganville with our fire department,” Roberts said in a press release. “We certainly wish him the best on his future.”
Capt. Tim Johnson, who currently serves as the assistant fire marshal, has been named the interim chief. Johnson has been a firefighter for almost 25 years, beginning his career first as a volunteer with the Loganville Fire Department before joining the city full-time in 2007. He was promoted to lieutenant on truck 15 before eventually accepting a position in the city’s Fire Marshal’s Office, where he served as captain and assistant fire marshal. He was also named the Georgia Fire Sprinkler Association’s Official of the Year in 2014.
Morrow began as a volunteer with the Loganville Fire Department in 1991. He went on to take a part-time role before joining the agency full-time in 1998. He was named fire chief on July 1, 2017.
