The Marietta Daily Journal – Smyrna hires 1st female fire chief

SMYRNA — For the first time in Smyrna’s history a woman will be taking on the role as Fire Chief for the city.

Paige Day, 46, who is the assistant fire chief in Missouri City, Texas, was appointed by a unanimous 7-0 vote by the City Council on Monday. She will take the position on Jan. 6.

“This is where I plan to stay,” Day said. “This is the capstone of my career. This is what I have always wanted.”

In a 10-year span, Day has earned two associate degrees in Fire Science and Paramedicine, a Bachelor of Science in Public Safety Administration and a Master of Science in Executive Fire Service Leadership.

In 2014, Day expects to complete her doctorate in Organizational Leadership.

Councilman Ron Fennel, who is the Public Safety Chairman, headed a panel that included Police Chief David Lee.
