COLLINSVILLE, Ala. — Volunteer firefighter Michael Twilley has announced his campaign for DeKalb County Constable, District 3. He is a candidate in the Republican primary.
Twilley is a former captain with Fort Payne Fire and Rescue, retiring after 27 years. During his career with the Fort Payne Fire Department, he also served as a health and safety director for American Red Cross, communications specialist with the DeKalb County Emergency Management Agency (EMA), dispatcher and reserve deputy for the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office, and a member of the Heavy 9 Rescue Team.
He currently serves as a volunteer for Dogtown and Sylvania fire departments and the Fischer Rescue Squad, as well as an employee of the Emergency Response Services (ERS) in Scottsboro.
