Mecklenburg County native Dennis Green had been in the interim post for the past three months. He replaces Trim Sawtelle, who retired from the department.
Green has worked for the town since 1991, when he was named EMS chief. He has been deputy chief of the fire and EMS department since 2008.
His wife, Kelly, works for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
