FRACKVILLE - Frackville has a new fire chief, after borough council appointed William Lindenmuth to the post Wednesday evening.
Lindenmuth, 35, was recommended by borough councilman Charles Berger, who recently retired as fire chief after 26 years as chief.
Lindenmuth has served with the company since 1997, and as an assistant chief since 2005.
"I'm just looking to keep pushing the fire company forward, raise the training, improve our equipment, and keep doing our job and moving forward," said Lindenmuth after the meeting.
Lindenmuth noted that firefighting runs in his family, as his father was a firefighter, and that's how be became involved.
"I feel it's vital to give back to your community, to be a part of it and to do something good for other people," Lindenmuth said of why being a part of the fire service is important.
