Amy Brow was sworn in as the new fire chief of Van Buren Township on Friday and she began her new job on Monday, April 24. Doing the swearing-in was VBT Clerk Leon Wright. Witnessing the ceremony was VBT Public Safety Director Gregory Laurain.
A crowd of relatives, former coworkers, and well-wishers filled the township board room for the event and then shared cake in celebration. VBT Trustee Sherry Frazier presented Chief Brow with a bouquet of flowers, noting she was very pleased that the township’s new fire chief is a woman, the first woman to serve in that position.
