At its 2013 reorganization meeting, the Holmdel Township Committee appointed Doug Ziemba Sr. township Fire Chief.
Mayor Patrick Impreveduto said the township had been without a chief since 2011 when Chief Tom Savage resigned his position.
"We are so happy to have Doug on board," Impreveduto said "Holmdel has been without a fire chief for two years, and the Township Committee is extremely pleased to name one of our own as Fire Chief."
Ziemba was previously chief of Fire Company Number One.
Ziemba will be involved in all matters concerning fire safety in the township, and worked as a liaison between Fire Company Number One, on Main Street, and Holmdel Fire and Rescue Number Two, on Centerville, and the township administration.
Savage was Holmdel Township's first Department Chief, appointed in 2007.
