Harriman has only had Fire Chief David Bailey one year, and it is already time to start looking for his replacement.
Bailey, who retired from Virginia, came to Harriman in March 2016, but will soon be leaving for Madison, Ala.
“It was just a personal family decision,” said Bailey.
He was one of three finalists to be interviewed last month for the Madison fire chief position.
Bailey said he has enjoyed working with the members of his department and others in the city as well as other agencies in Roane County.
