WINDSOR, Vt. (AP) - Officials say a part-time firefighter and EMT has been hired as the next chief for the Windsor Fire Department.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/1FtdYT1 ) Town Manager Tom Marsh announced at a Selectboard meeting Tuesday night that 51-year-old Kevin McAllister will leave his post as a lieutenant in the West Hartford Fire Department in Connecticut on Oct. 1.

McAllister is from Windsor, Connecticut and has worked full-time in the state since 1995. He joined the Windsor, Vermont department in 2005 as an EMT and has been the assistant fire chief there since 2013.

McAllister takes over for Chief Mark Kirko, who is moving to Washington where he will be the deputy fire chief. His last day is Friday.

McAllister says he needs to build on what Kirko has accomplished.
