CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming’s fire marshal, who has served in the position for a decade, has announced that he will retire.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/28ZnX31 ) that Fire Marshal Lanny Applegate announced his decision in a statement Tuesday. Gov. Matt Mead has appointed one of his policy advisors, Michael Reed, to take over as state fire marshal on Friday.

Reed has 28 years of experience in law enforcement and has served as Rawlins’ chief of police for 10 years.

Applegate became the state’s fire marshal in 2006. His primary duties have been assisting with fire prevention efforts across the state, electrical safety, training, inspections and fire investigations.
