Lynnfield Selectmen voted Monday night to hire a new fire chief, contingent upon successful contract negotiations.

Mark Tetreault has been the fire chief of Barnstead, in Central New Hampshire, since 2010, and he started his career in 1982 with the fire department in Franklin, New Hampshire.

A 2010 article from New Hampshire’s Salmon Press newspapers notes that Tetreault was selected back then from 15 candidates to become the first full-time fire chief in the 101-year history of the Barnstead Fire Department.

Tetreault also noted that the Barnstead Fire Department and the Firefighter Explorer Training Program were just featured on WMUR-TV’s New Hampshire Chronicle. Check it out at this link.

Tetreault told Lynnfield Patch after the meeting that he grew up in Franklin after moving to New Hampshire with his family as a boy from Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

There is no set date at this point for when Tetreault would begin duties in Lynnfield, although early to mid January is possible.

Back in June, the current Lynnfield Fire Chief, Joseph Lingel, informed selectmen that he would retire after a 44-year career with the town’s department.
