NEWLONDON, Conn. (WTNH) — In an announcement today, New London Mayor Daryl Finizio, joined by Councilor Erica Richardson, Fire Chief Henry Kydd and Personnel Administrator Tina Collins said they are changing the way they recruit fire fighters as they resume hiring in the New London Fire Department.

“In order to attract a broader, more diverse pool of applicants than we’ve had in the past, we’ll be conducting an open search to allow non-certified hires,” said Mayor Finizio. “If you want a career serving the City of New London, and if you are willing to learn and to work hard, then we encourage you to apply.”

Finizio, Richardson, Kydd and Collins will jointly be in charge of reviewing applications and selecting the new hires.

The City will initially hire two new fire fighters. “Funding for these positions will come from positions which are budgeted for but are currently vacant,” said Finizio.
