Belmont Fire Department hires its first full-time chief

The Belmont Fire Department’s first full-time chief is a career police officer who recently worked with the Belmont Police Department.

Chief Todd Davis said his love for firefighting was sparked as a child, watching his father volunteer for the Cramerton Fire Department.

Todd Davis, a career law enforcement officer with experience fighting arson, is the new chief of the Belmont Fire Department.

Davis, who is now 51, said he got his start in the profession himself by volunteering at Cramerton in 1988, when he was just 17.

He was drawn to “the camaraderie, the brotherhood, giving back to the community,” he said.

Davis enlisted in the Navy in 1989 after graduating from high school and served in the Navy for three years, working on fire crews.

After leaving the navy, he returned to Cramerton and continued to volunteer with the fire department. He also began basic law enforcement training.
