Mr. Butler brings a great deal of knowledge to the job and is an instructor in subjects that include Engine and Truck Company Operations, Rural Water Supply, and Fire Fighter Survival/Rescue.Butler will report to Brian Byrd, Davie County’s Emergency Management Coordinator. "As we collectively look to the future, I am confident that with the addition of Mr. Butler as our County Fire Marshal, he and Mr. Byrd have the technical, management and interpersonal skills to lead the County’s Fire, Emergency Management Coordination, and Emergency Medical Services, while partnering with our key stakeholders,” said County Manager, John Eller.
