PLYMOUTH – On Friday, Nov. 5, Plymouth's Deputy Fire Chief Jeremy Bonan announced that after 17 years with Plymouth Fire-Rescue Department he would soon be leaving his position to take on the role of Fire Chief for the Town of Holderness.

Immediately following Bonan's announcement, his fellow firefighters and EMTs posted the following sentiments on their Facebook page: "Deputy Chief Bonan, Thank you for your seventeen years of unrivaled dedication to Plymouth Fire-Recue and our community! Your presence will be sorely missed. Good luck with the next chapter!"

Bonan first came to Plymouth as a Call Firefighter in October of 2004 when he was attending college at Plymouth State University. Upon graduation from PSU he was then hired as a fulltime firefighter on Jan. 8, 2008.

Proving to be hard-working professional, Bonan moved up to the rank of Captain in September of 2015 when that position opened. Four years later he was sworn in as the town's new Deputy Chief on the same night that the previous Deputy Chief, Tom Morrison, was sworn in as the new Chief.

Chief Morrison said that during his tenure with the department, Jeremy additionally served as president of the Plymouth Firefighters Association's, participating in and often leading activities and fundraisers while serving the community's needs as well.

"It's certainly sad to see him go," Morrison said this week, "but this is a great opportunity for him to become the first full time chief for the Holderness Fire Department."

He added that Bonan is moving in a positive direction in his career and believes he will serve the Town of Holderness well in the future, just as he has in Plymouth. Morrison is also grateful that, although he's taking on the full time job as chief across the river, Bonan plans to continue on as a Call Firefighter for Plymouth and maintain a role with Plymouth Firefighters Association.

Bonan's last day as Deputy Chief will be Thurs., Dec. 2. An Open House will be held at the fire station that day from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. when the public is invited to stop by to wish him well in his new career and enjoy some light refreshments.

Applications are still being accepted for anyone interested in filling the duties of Deputy Chief. Qualifications and other information on the job opening are available on the Plymouth Fire-Rescue Facebook page as well as in the Help Wanted pages of this paper. While the position will remain open until it is filled, the first review of applications received will get underway on Monday, Nov. 29, with Oral Interviews expected to start shortly thereafter. Interested parties are asked to submit a cover letter and resume addressed to Chief Tom Morrison, 42 Highland St., Plymouth, N.H. 03264.
