Brian Walls is taking over Guntersville’s fire and rescue department after Brian Waldrop retired. Walls has served on the fire and rescue squad since 2004, and has served as deputy chief since 2015. “Lot of mixed emotions. I’m humbled, honored, and excited,” Walls said. “(Waldrop) left some big shoes to walk in.” Walls said the transition to his new role was easy. “When I came in on Tuesday morning as the newly appointed fire chief, we just went to work. I had my duties, but I had to check his phone to see if anyone was buzzing through.” Walls told WAFF that the city of Guntersville provides unique challenges for a fire and rescue department. “It’s very rare that you run into the same thing twice because of where we live with the mountains, the lake, and everything in between,” he said.
