Svrcek noted that Deputy Chief Wormser brings a depth of knowledge to serve in this position while the search for a new Fire Chief continues. Deputy Chief Wormser said, “I am honored and humbled by the confidence the City Manager has of me to fill the gap while the search continues for the new Chief. I look forward to providing the leadership to the Lynchburg Fire Department during this time.” Wormser will continue his responsibilities as Deputy Chief of Operations while filling the Acting Fire Chief position.
