Longtime Spring Hill Fire Chief Terry Hood was fired by the City of Spring Hill on Tuesday following what the city called “poor record keeping resulting in potential liability to the city.”

The statement said: “Statement from City Administrator Pam Caskie:

We appreciate his excellent service. The Spring Hill Fire Department benefited immensely under his leadership.
