WEST ALEXANDRIA — The Village of West Alexandria swore in a new Assistant EMS Chief during a village council meeting on Monday, March 19.
After Sherri Scott stepped down from the position, EMS Chief Tom Smith presented Steve Weigold to be sworn in by Mayor Carol Lunsford.
Assistant Chief Weigold is a 30-plus year veteran of Fire and EMS service, having started as a cadet in the mid 1980s with a Hamilton County, Ohio department. Though a Cincinnati native, Weigold has served departments ranging in size from large countywide departments to small rural departments in multiple states, in both fire and EMS capacities.
He most recently retired from a Butler County department after 20 years of service, 15 of which were as a Command Officer, and having been promoted to the rank of EMS Chief.
