Austintown's new fire chief has familiar name
AUSTINTOWN — The township fire department will not see a big change in its ranks after Monday night, nor will it see a name change for the chief.
Trustees said they have decided to keep interim Chief Andrew Frost III on as the official chief.
“It’s a big step,” Frost said. “But my family supported me and they were behind me whatever decision I made. I think it’s going to be a great thing.”
Frost follows in the footsteps of his father, Andrew Frost, Jr., who retired as chief in August after two decades as chief and four decades on the department.
