On March 2, Marcus Brown was promoted to Assistant Fire Chief for the Waxahachie Fire Department, after Randall Potter retired from the position in January. 

Brown has been with Waxahachie Fire-Rescue for 21 years and has held every rank in the department from firefighter to Fire Marshal.

"In each position throughout the years, he has provided excellent service to the citizens and businesses of Waxahachie," said Chief Richard Boyd. "He exemplifies servant leadership. He has the respect of the members of the department and everyone he comes in contact with. We look forward to a bright future for Waxahachie Fire-Rescue under his leadership."
