News of the chief’s pending retirement was announced in a memo at the beginning of December.

“As many of you are aware, Fire Chief Lohr is a participant in the Deferred Retirement Option Plan (DROP),” wrote Tim Firestine, Montgomery County’s chief administrative officer, in a Dec. 4 memo to all Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services personnel. “The purpose of this memorandum is to inform you of the status of the Fire Chief position as Fire Chief Lohr exits the DROP, effective December 31, 2014.”

Firestine said Scott Goldstein will become the acting Fire Chief after Chief Lohr’s exit from the DROP.
