NORWICH — The town of Norwich has named its next fire chief. Town Manager Herb Durfee announced that Norwich resident Alexander Northern will take over for Steve Leinoff, who stepped down in March after 40 years of firefighting, according to a news release issued on Tuesday. Northern has worked in fire service since the late 1970s, starting as an on-call firefighter in Hanover. He also has worked for the Hartford Fire Department. He holds fire science and other degrees. He was hired at $61,000 a year. “Chief Northern brings a rare skill set to the department given his educational background, ‘boots on the ground’ experience, having served as an instructor at the state’s fire academy, and being a resident,” Durfee wrote in the release..
