Lexington's former Fire Chief Robert Hendricks begins his new job Tuesday as a firefighter and paramedic.

The Fire Department says he will begin by training for up to three weeks, though it could be less than that.

The training is 10-hours a day, Tuesday through Friday.

Hendricks will then begin a typical firefighter schedule of 24 hours on, then 48 hours off.

Hendricks has been in the news a lot over the last year and a half.

Mayor Jim Gray asked Hendricks to resign in 2011.

The mayor said it was because of low morale and budget issues.

But Hendricks filed a complaint saying he should get a city job because of a disability.
