A long-time Mansfield firefighter and paramedic moves-up in the ranks with a promotion Thursday. James Odson was sworn-in as the department's tenth Lieutenant, by Safety-Service Director Lori Cope, as his wife, three children, parents, and in-laws looked on with pride. Leann Odson also pinned his new badge on her husband's chest. Odson is a 22-year veteran, and the fire department's first ever paramedic. Fire Chief says he's happy to have Odson on the management team. The rank of Lieutenant was added to the Mansfield Fire Department as part of the latest firefighters' contract, with the number of captains reduced. When restructuring is completed, the department will have eleven Lieutenants and eight captains.
