New Hampton Fire Department touts new fire chief

Time pushed firefighter Toby Schwickerath into the fire chief position, and even though Steve Geerts had been leading the department for 24 years, Schwickerath thought he was ready to lead. Schwickerath 39-years-old, was elected last month into the slot and has been looking forward to the future for the department ever since.

According to the New Hampton Tribune, Schwicherath is proud of the department’s history and tradition but says, “I think we had some people who were ready for a change.”
