Albany --  The Albany Fire Department's Deputy Chief is the new Waycross Fire Chief.   Forty-three-year-old David Eddins' was hired by the Waycross City Commission Tuesday night.  

Eddins has worked with the Albany Fire Department for more than 20 years, working his way up from firefighter to Deputy Chief.  

He says he looks forward to leading the planned growth in the Waycross Department.

"I'll have to build their confidence in me, coming in from the outside," said Eddins. "And I don't think that will be a hard task at all. It will just be a teamwork effort. Not only with the firefighters, but the community as a whole.

Eddins will stay with the Albany Fire Department until March, and then begin his new position as Waycross Fire Chief March 12th.
