Swearing In of New Fire Chief and Deputy Fire Chief Set for August 26 at 3 p.m. in City Council Chambers


On Monday, August 26, 2019 at 3 p.m., Mayor Gavin Buckley will swear in the City’s new Fire Chief, Doug Remaley. Upon the swearing in of Remaley, the new fire chief will authorize Deputy Fire Chief Carroll Spriggs’ elevation to second in command of the Annapolis Fire Department.

Remaley will be the 6th career Chief of the Annapolis Fire Department. He is a lifelong Annapolitan and has spent his career with Annapolis Fire, first as a volunteer, then working his way up the ranks to Deputy Chief under Chief David Stokes.

The Annapolis Fire Department, which dates to the 1800s, operates three stations (Eastport, Forest Drive and Taylor  Avenue) and shares the Anne Arundel County Annapolis Neck fire station. The Fire Department also operates a 36-foot Fire Boat, a Hazardous Materials Unit, a Bomb Squad and a Fire and Explosive Investigations Unit. There are currently 142 members of the department.
