Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District Welcomes New Fire Chief Jeremy Young

On June 12, 2017, the Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District will welcome Jeremy Young as the new Fire Chief of the District with a Swearing-In Ceremony at the Fire District’s Business & Education Center.

The search for a new Fire Chief began in December 2016, after the current Fire Chief, Theodore Poszywak, gave notice to the Board of Directors that he would be stepping down from his position once a successor was appointed. With several pivotal projects and objectives completed in his over 11 years as Fire Chief, and several new organizational projects identified, funded, and supported, Chief Poszywak stated there will not be a better time to open the next chapter of both the District’s and his future and he believed it is an opportune time to plan for a stable transition to the next Fire Chief.
