After 35 years of service to the Mountain Home community, one of the city's veteran firefighters was named to head the department.

Alan Bermensolo, who had served as the city's interim fire chief over the past four months, was sworn in during a ceremony Oct. 9 at city hall.

  • I guess it is all about the "Good Old Boy" system in Mtn Home. Not the most qualified person to fill the highest position. Wait a year and we will be doing this again, after he has this position on his resume!
