NEWTON — Town officials are in search of a new fire chief and they’re looking for candidates.
Fire Chief William Ingalls is retiring after 50 years of service to the department. His last day is Oct. 23, so the search is on for his replacement.
The chief will work about 25 hours per week, will maintain regular office hours and be available for emergency call-backs.
The Newton Fire Department is made up of a committed corps of on-call staff and is responsible for providing all traditional fire services to this community. Although EMS transports are handled by a private ambulance service, the fire department is a first responder.
The successful candidate will have an associate’s or bachelor’s degree with a concentration in fire science, public administration or a closely related field, and 10 years experience in fire service, with at least five years of supervisory experience; or any combination of education and experience which demonstrates possession of required knowledge, skills and abilities.
The deadline to apply is July 3. Email a resume, letter of application and work-related references to email@example.com.
Send resumes in confidence to: Newton, NH - Fire Chief Search, ATTN: Gail Schillinger, Municipal Resources Inc., 120 Daniel Webster Highway, Meredith, 03253.
