The Hempstead Village board of trustees on Tuesday swore in the new village fire department chiefs.
New chief Steven Giardino took over for outgoing chief Frederick Sandas Jr. after his one-year term.
The new first assistant chief is Scott Clark and the second and third assistant chiefs are Kyle Boles and Chad Mott, respectively.
Sandas said the department responded to 1,607 fire alarm calls between April 21, 2017, and Tuesday, which included 17 fires.
Mayor Don Ryan swore in Giardino, and Deputy Mayor Charles Renfroe administered the oath to the assistant chiefs.
