The Stevens Point Fire Department has named an interim fire chief. Assistant Chief Bob Finn was named by the Police and Fire Commission as the interim chief earlier this week.
The position became open after the current chief, Tracy Kujawa, took a new job as Wausau Fire Chief. Finn says he's honored to be named interim chief, and he hopes his long firefighting history can help the department.
"I'm looking forward to keep the fire house going the way it is, looking forward to keeping the relationships I have with the Police and Fire Commission, the county administration and forging new relationships that I don't have as an acting chief with the EMS side with the county and ambulance services," said Finn.
Finn will take over the Stevens Point Fire Department as interim chief May 9th. The Police and Fire Commission is in the process of planning how it will search for its next chief.
