Four Hattiesburg firefighters received promotions to new ranks and positions during a pinning ceremony Monday.
Johnny Jackson, who has been with the department since 1995, was promoted to battalion chief and is now the new city fire marshal. Matt Saucier, who has also been a Hattiesburg firefighter since 1995, was promoted to Captain. He is in charge of four-stations in the east district.
