New fire chief hired for Hanover, NH

Posted: Updated:

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A deputy Rochester fire chief who was seriously injured in an off-duty crash late last year is resigning his position to take a job in New Hampshire.

Local media report that Martin McMillan is leaving the Rochester Fire Department to become fire chief in Hanover, N.H.

McMillan's last day on the job will be April 29, which happens to be his 29th anniversary with the Rochester department.

He'll begin his new job May 5. Hanover, a town of about 8,500 on the Vermont border, is home to Dartmouth College.

In late November, McMillan's vehicle was hit in Rochester by a pickup truck driven by a suspect trying to escape police. He spent about two weeks in the hospital recovering from his injuries. The crash occurred shortly after McMillan applied for the Hanover job.
