Long-time Austintown fire chief Andy Frost Jr. retires

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.

Look out...he's already pulling strings and political favors to be appointed the next trustee position to replace Ditzler. We will end up spending the 2 million dollar gift from the horse race track on another fire station and 10 new fire trucks.

good thing AFD is very successful with grant writing AtownRes. So count out the 10 new fire trucks right off the bat.

The only reason we get grants is because the federal government throws money at first reponders (FIRE) like a spoiled child and AFD always shows a deficite spending ie - in general fund.

He may have not personally assisted you at an emergency, but no doubt the Chief his men were ready to put their lives on the line for you .....
