New Liberty Township Fire Chief Comes From Newark Fire Department

Trustees in Delaware County's Liberty Township have named 50-year-old Tom O'Brien as the township fire chief, following the demotion of the former chief. O'Brien is currently the Newark assistant fire chief. He will replace Tim Jensen, who was demoted last September in a dispute with trustees over his management style. He later sued, the result of which forced the township to keep him on the payroll.  

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
