Colorado Springs' Interim Fire Chief Tommy Smith will be moving to Redmond, Washington after accepting the chief position there. Smith stepped in as the interim head of the Colorado Springs Fire Department earlier this year when Chief Rich Brown stepped down. Smith is expected to begin his new duties in September, after Christopher Riley takes over the fire department. Riley was appointed as the city's fire chief last week, pending approval from city council. According to a press release at the time, there were no internal candidates for CSFD Chief.
