Early Thursday morning, Jim Anderson resigned from his position as the director of Bryan County Emergency Services, according to County Administrator Phil Jones.
Jones said Anderson brought a resignation letter into his office around 8:20 a.m. Thursday. No reason has been released for the resignation.

Jones said the vacancy will be filled for the time being by trained deputies in fire services, emergency medical services and other deputies in the emergency operations center.

Anderson has worked for Bryan County Emergency Services for eight years, Jones said.
