LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

In November, the City of Lubbock will be looking for a new Emergency Management Coordinator.

Lewis Treadwell is retiring after holding the position for three years and serving on the fire department for more than three decades.

In his time as coordinator, Treadwell led crews to help with area wildfires, the oil spill at Lake Alan Henry and massive city flooding during the Fourth of July weekend in 2010.

The Emergency Management Coordinator helps prepare, prevent, respond and recover from disasters.

Mayor Tom Martin talked with us about the search for Treadwell's replacement.

"Mike Kemp, the fire chief, will be looking at some candidates to replace Chief Treadwell. He'll bring those candidates to me," Martin continued. "The mayor makes the final decision under state law in the appointment of an Emergency Management Coordinator."

After retirement Treadwell says he'll continue to work with the area's incident response team.
