The City of Reno will soon have a permanent fire chief in place. For the latest update on this week's city council meeting, we turn to Reno Public Radio's Noah Glick.
During the meeting, Reno City Manager Andrew Clinger recommended Acting Fire Chief Dave Cochran for the permanent post. Cochran started in August. Since then, he's modified labor contracts, hired new firefighters and negotiated an automatic aid agreement, which requires the nearest unit to respond to a report of a fire, regardless of jurisdiction.
