Battalion Chief Audie Ferris Retires
Battalion Chief Audie Ferris retired on April 8th after working for the Roanoke Fire Department and Roanoke Fire EMS Department for 28 years. Ferris was hired on November 20, 1980 and was promoted to Battalion Chief in 1999 if my memory serves me correctly. His most recent assignment has been BC of Southside A-Shift as well as being in charge of HTR and the Swift Water Rescue Team.
The Southside A shift firefighters had a party for him on Monday at Station 1 and Admin had a get together for him on Wednesday.
We wish you the best Chief.
Audie is retiring from the fire department and from what I hear will be working with the State Medical Examiners Office located in Roanoke County as an MSI.
I have attached some photos of Audie for your pleasure as well. Some old and some real old. Enjoy.
