Congratulations to Rod Smith, the new head of the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department! He and his family live right here in Piedmont Heights, and he's been with the fire department for more than 24 years.
With the help of his wife, Dawn, and several friends, his neighbors surprised Rod with an outdoor celebration to commemorate the occasion! Thank you for your service, Chief Smith!
Read all about it on the AJC or 11Alive.
More celebration pictures coming soon!
