The Waupaca Area Fire District has a new Chief. The District’s Fire Commission today voted to promote First Assistant Chief Jerry Deuman to the position of Chief.
Deuman was among three candidates interviewed for the position. All are current firefighters. Deuman takes over for Jeff Olson, who retired from the department at the end of December. Deuman is a 22 year veteran of the fire department, and has been the First Assistant for the past three years. His appointment as Chief begins immediately.
