Former JFRD division chief named new Fire Chief for Nassau County

First Coast News has learned that Nassau County Fire Rescue has a new Fire Chief.

Brady Rigdon, a former Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department division chief, has accepted the position Monday.

His hiring comes after its former Fire Chief, Matt Graves, resigned March 31 following an evaluation that was held regarding his future with the department. At the meeting, several long term concerns were voiced, but those concerns were not revealed.

Rigdon began his Firefighter/EMT career in 1991 and was named Division Chief of Operations in 2006. He retired after 26 years of service in April of 2017 before accepting this job. Rigdon has also been the Procurement Manager for the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation since November of 2013.

The Nassau County Manager's Office said there is no known official start date for Rigdon.
