Williamsburg Fire Chief T.K. “Buz” Weiler will retire from the force in July 2009, after 42 years of dedicated service. Weiler joined the Fire Department after leaving the United States Navy in 1967. He achieved the rank of Fire Chief in 1991. Mayor Jeanne Zeidler praised Weiler’s service highly, calling Weiler “an integral force in city management as well as the community.”
“Perhaps his greatest legacy is the fine corps of city firefighters he has trained, managed and inspired so capably,” Mayor Zeidler said.
Deputy Fire Chief Pat Dent will serve as acting Fire Chief upon Weiler’s retirement.
