 By unanimous decision, the City of Miami has selected a new fire chief.

 Chris Chenoweth was appointed to the position May 27th, following the retirement of former Fire Chief Robert Wright, who served for 28 years with the department.

 Chenoweth is a 2004 graduate of Welch High School. He started his career with the Miami Fire Department in 2013, and was promoted to Deputy Chief in December of 2022. Before joining the Miami Fire Department, Chenoweth had served since 2008 on the Welch Volunteer Fire Department, following in his father's footsteps, who was a 30-year volunteer with the department.
