Utica Gets New Fire Chief

Posted by wlpo on October 29, 2013

You would be hard pressed to find a younger fire chief than the one in Utica.

25-year old Ben Brown is the new chief of the Utica Fire Protection District.  The fire board’s trustees unanimously chose Brown to take over for Gary Gbur.  Gbur resigned a couple weeks saying there was “irreconcilable differences” between himself and the fire trustees.

Brown has been a member of the fire protection district since 2003.  He’s also a paramedic for the Peru Ambulance Service.
