While we're at it, the City of Williamsburg (Virginia) is looking for a Deputy Fire Chief.  In case anyone's interested, here's the information:

Deputy Fire Chief
Type: Full Time
Salary/Pay Rate: 67,808
Posted Date: 10/3/2008
Deadline to Apply: 10/31/2008

Responsible to fire chief for operations, personnel and equipment of the fire department and for compliance with departmental policies and procedures. Must exercise strong independent judgment, manage multiple tasks, and provide a motivational atmosphere for department members through leadership, communications, good example and positive attitude. Directs work of firefighters until relieved of command by the fire chief. Performs multiple assignments as described in the FD Administrative Manual including deputy emergency management coordinator. Residence requirements: Within ten (10) miles of Williamsburg City Corporate Limits (Council Ordinance # 07-17). Starting salary $67,808 with great benefits, VRS.

Williamsburg is a nice town, population of about 6,000 in the city limits, and a HUGE tourist trade in the spring, summer & fall (for Colonial Williamsburg).  It has the College of William & Mary, a Budweiser brewery, Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, and a lot more.  If you're a history buff, there's Yorktown (where the Revolutionary War was won), Jamestown (the first permanent English colony in America), and many Civil War sites from the Peninsula Campaign.  The climate is good, too . . . we haven't had a real winter (i.e. no snow) in the last five years.  All in all, it's a great place to live.  Hope to see one of you get the job.  One caveat:  you gotta like WHITE fire trucks (ugh!)
