Storyline

Fire Chief Joe Carson appoints Oliver as his assistant, assuming he'll pay for his trip to a Miami convention. Instead, Oliver's complaints about how the Hooterville Fire Department is inept and unprepared result in Carson being booted and himself being named chief. Not wanting the job or the grief he's getting for supposedly stabbing Uncle Joe in the back, Oliver finds a way to get himself canned--fining everyone in the valley for fire code violations.
