Fire Chief Terry W. Hood would say Confucius' longstanding advice, "Choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life" was meant for him. Firefighting is a family tradition for Hood, who has been doing it for 39 years, starting in high school with the Williamson County Rescue squad. He moved up the ranks to Chief in 1992 when he left. Franklin Fire Department hired him full-time after graduation and he served there for 25 years, retiring as a Lieutenant.
By 2008 Terry was CEO of Southern Fire Analysis, Inc., a private company that investigated fires for insurance companies. At age 48 he accepted Spring Hill Fire Department's top post.

He is a graduate of Page High School and obtained his Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) from Columbia State Community College. He moved through the ranks to Battalion Chief and in 2021 was promoted to Deputy Fire Chief.
Deputy Chief Glenn resides on a farm just outside the City limits of Spring Hill with his wife, Sarah, and two daughters. He spends most of his time outside of work hay farming and acting as a truck driver and stable hand for his two daughters who barrel race.
