Four New Lieutenants Assume Position At Area Fire Stations

New lieutenantsFour new lieutenants were recently promoted, rounding out the group of 10 named last year to assume their new role as positions become available following retirements and other promotions.

Each candidate passed a rigorous application process in order to qualify. All have at least ten years of experience in the department. In addition to taking a written test, all candidates are reviewed on various aspects of their overall job performance, including etiquette, punctuality, and engagement with the public, to name just a few. They also participated in a three-part “Assessment Center” where they were tested on personnel problem solving, fire response strategy, and teaching scenarios.

The following individuals assumed their new positions this spring, serving in one of three 24-hour shift cycles (e.g. “A” shift, “B” shift, “C” shift).

We invite you to get to know them by following this blog throughout the week!
