This young man was elected for the position of Chief of the town's Fire Department in Andover Maine. Who feels he is too young? 25 YEAR OLD CHIEF

Because it seems from this posting that the new Chief had three very important assets the other candidate did not have, FF I&II certification, EMT-B certification and most importantly, the support of the towns electorate, he is the most qualified for the position. Time in office is a great asset, but should not be the deciding factor on its own.

I feel he will do just fine.

Qualifications is the key, although experience and how to manage people at 25 seem a bit young. I see the word elected does that mean  regardless of what he knows he can take over the white helmet and all the responsibilities that goes with it??

I hope he does well and carry on taking exams, training courses to keep up with so many changes made almost every week how things are done. He must gain respect from his fire fighters to make this work.  Good Luck.  

It did seem that this young man already was very respected and trusted by the rest of the department. He also has the most certifications and experience compared to the others, so overall, he is just as reasonable a candidate as on older person would be relative to any other squad.

He seems to be a "good fit" to me Captain. If you visit this link ANDOVER FIRE DEPT you will see all about the department, the equipment and the members.

I would be interested to keep in touch with the said department and wish them well for the future. Perhaps invite them to this site.
