COLUMBIA, TN (WSMV) -

Chief Mark Gandee of the Maury County Fire Department announced Tuesday that he would be retiring in June.

Gandee said in a news release that he addressed the Safety Committee of the Maury County Commission regarding his decision, after 33 years of active service with the department.

"Over the past several years, the Maury County Fire Department has become known across the state of Tennessee as a progressive department. It has been very successful with its grant procurement and capitol improvements program, most recently hiring the department's first full-time firefighters with proceeds from a federal program designed to help communities staff the fire service," Gandee said.

Gandee said his retirement will be effective June 30, 2013.
