State Fire Marshal to Step Down for Post at DOC


West Virginia’s Fire Marshal announced Monday he’s stepping down from his post after more than 22 years in the Fire Marshal’s office.

State Fire Marshal Anthony Carrico will be leaving his current job to take over as a corrections program manager in the state Division of Corrections.

Carrico took over as acting Marshal in April of 2013 and became the office’s permanent head in September of this year. He said in a release he’d put his heart and sole into the agency, but was presented with a great opportunity at the DOC.

The State Fire Commission has schedule a special meeting for December 22 to discuss filling the vacancy.
