Dieterich, 47, said he doesn't have the time to devote to the position that it merits.
He also is a captain with the Hagerstown Fire Department and works full time as a manager with AllSafe Fire Trucks near Beaver Creek.
Dieterich was chief at Funkstown from 1981 to 1986 when he resigned for personal reasons. He became chief again in 1991.
