A former fire chief in Florida is seeking to be reinstated to the department as a battalion chief. Scott Bullard was the fire chief for St. Johns County. He claims when he decided to resign as fire chief earlier this month, he was told by Interim County Administrator Joy Andrews that he would be allowed to return to his previous position as a battalion chief.
Chief Bullard has filed a formal grievance with the county commission, claiming the county violated the law by removing him entirely from the department. He is a 22-year veteran of St. Johns County Fire Rescue.
