Zanesville’s new Fire Chief will be sworn in at City Hall next week. Friday, we got the chance to hear from him as he gets ready to take over.

Currently, as the Interim Fire Chief, Craig Stemm says he is excited and looking forward to the challenge of the new position. Stemm scored the highest out of two others applying to be the new chief.

"Different job. I’ve been here almost 32 years. Started at the bottom. You might say I guess 32 years ago as a firefighter and just work your way to the top," said Stemm.

Next week’s ceremony for swearing stemm in will be at Zanesville City Hall at 3 pm Friday. Stemm is replacing Dave Lacy who retired in January.
