Tommy Smith, a deputy chief of the Colorado Springs Fire Department, has been named interim Fire Chief by Mayor Steve Bach, the city announced Monday.

He'll replace Rich Brown, who last week announced his retirement, effective April 30.

Smith has been with the Fire Department since 1991, serving as a firefighter, paramedic, lieutenant, captain and battalion chief. He currently oversees support services, which includes the training and medical divisions,  division of the Fire Marshal, fleet and facilities, human resources, public communications and community education. Smith has a bachelor’s degree in organizational management in human resources.

“Tommy is already a leader in the Colorado Springs Fire Department and will be a great asset to the department during the transition. His experience will serve the city well during this interim period,” Bach said in a new release.

The city will conduct a national search, looking both internally and externally, for a fire chief.
