Charleston Mayor Danny Jones swears in new firefighters (left to right) Bryan Payne, William Martin, Thomas Robinson and Patrick Lively during a ceremony at City Hall on Thursday. With retirements and attrition, Fire Chief Charles Overstreet said, the new hires bring the department's complement to 168 firefighters and paramedics, just short of its authorized strength of 171. Overstreet said he hopes to hire three additional firefighters soon.
