A Message from Your President
As we start 2020, I want to thank everyone for all that you have done in 2019 and send out some news about my home department.
As most of you know our Fire Chief, Butch Womack won the Mayoral Election in November and is set to take office on January 13, 2020. Chief Womack retired as Fire Chief effective December 31, 2019. He started his career at the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office then to a short stint at Pickens City Police Department before starting his career at the Easley Fire Department in 1985. He was promoted to Lieutenant in 1989 and then to Chief in 1993. During this entire time being a reserve Sheriff’s Deputy at PCSO.
He started our aluminum can program as a Lieutenant and as Chief replaced every major piece of equipment, built a new station and overseen the planning and remodel of our existing Station #1 and City Hall Fire Station to be designated as Station #4 after sitting closed since 1998.
I would like to wish Mayor Womack continued success and to let him know that he is always welcome to join us if he is in the area during our conferences.
In Service Together,
Capt. J. Scott McClain
