On Friday, the Bradley County 911 Director Search Committee got its first look at the seven applications and resume packets submitted for the job. Each committee member received a packet with each applicant’s information for review.

Committee Chairman Ron Harrison said the committee had set aside nine days to review applications, but probably wouldn’t need that much time with only seven candidates to consider.

Search committee members will begin discussion of the seven 911 director applicants next week and set interviews for each of them. After those interviews, the search committee will narrow the list to the top tier of candidates to present to the 911 Board for further interviews.

Also, committee members will review the final version of the candidate interview questions at their next meeting, set for 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 8, at the Cleveland Fire Department Station 1.
