FIREFIGHTERS SAY FAREWELL 

TO

ASSISTANT CHIEF RYAN HANES 

FEBRUARY 2016

 

 

From the desk of Chief John Maynard:

Assistant Chief Ryan Hanes announced to its members last month that he is stepping down at the end of February to take a spot at a fire department in suburban Charlotte, NC.

Chief John Maynard describes Hanes as one of his top volunteers and wishes him success with his new position. 

Assistant Chief Ryan Hanes, who was the 2013 firefighter of the year, and who led the fire departments training program, will head West in just a few short days to become a full-time firefighter with the Mathews Fire Department (a Charlotte suburb). Hanes has been with the Red Oak Fire Department since April 12, 2012 and has served as Lieutenant, Captain and now Assistant Chief.  Hanes is also a full-time employee with Greenville Fire-Rescue, part-time employee of Greene County EMS and served as a firefighter in the military prior to joining us as a volunteer.

Hanes is the proud volunteer who each month, without fail, stood post in the Red Oak Fire Department to cover vacant shifts.

He was the volunteer who coordinated weekly training and new slogans so that the department could improve.

He was the hero some younger men looked up to and were inspired by.

"He loved Red Oak Fire Department," said Chief Singleton.

Soon, many volunteers, including many paid firefighters, will say farewell.

Although Chief Hanes is resigning from his leadership position he will remain on the roster for a few more months until his move is complete. He will be greatly missed.
