COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — It’s official…Columbus Fire Chief Ken Moore is retiring after 30 years with the city.

Mayor Robert Smith says he has received Moore’s retirement letter. It’s effective March 31. He plans to take a Homeland Security job in Louisiana.

Moore has been chief for almost nine years and leaves at the height of his career. Last week, the department achieved national accreditation, marking the only one in the state and one of less than 200 in the country to meet the strict standards.

Moore is on vacation and Assistant Chief Martin Andrews is running the department. Andrews could be named interim chief on April 1 when the city council is expected to officially start the search for Moore’s replacement.
