Long-time Austintown fire chief Andy Frost Jr. retires
By Elise Franco
When Andy Frost Jr. retires his post as fire chief in August he’ll be taking 46 years of experience and memories with him.
Frost, 68, said his choice to retire wasn’t an easy one, but he knew it was time.
“I’m at the age where I need to enjoy myself and my family,” he said. “I’m happy here at the department, but I want more time with my grand kids.”
Frost began his career with the Austintown Fire Department in 1966 as a part-time firefighter, and in 1980 he became the first full-time, nonmanagement employee in the department’s history. Five years later, in 1985, Frost was named fire chief.
He said his interest in the profession is something that continued to develop into his adult life.
