The Springfield Fire Department held its awards banquet Thursday night at Springfield United Methodist Church’s social hall.

James Derryberry will take over as chief from Edwin Rahn, the 21-year veteran who is stepping down from that position.  

The department also held a retirement recognition for Richard Dallow, who spent 17 years in service. Dallow’s helmet also was retired.
