Tulsa has a new fire chief.
A bell sounds signifying the passing of the Chief’s badge from Alan LaCroix to Ray Driskell. La Croix is retiring, and Driskell has been named the new head of the department. He knows finances are still tight, and he’s visited with the mayor about department needs. Safety and improvements to the medical services division are among his priorities. He also says he wants to focus more on those in the field, those doing the job day in and day out.
Driskell becomes only the 11th chief in the 100-year history of the Tulsa Fire Department.
