History was made within the Newark Fire Department Wednesday. Brandon Metzger was sworn in Wednesday as Newark Fire Department's first deputy chief as his father Ron Metzger, a lieutenant with the Violet Township Fire Department, held a Bible. Brandon Metzger, who lives in Pickerington, said it meant a great deal to him to be promoted to the position. While the position requires hard work and more responsibility, Metzger said he is ready for it. "It's just a privilege to be here, a privilege to assume a little bit more responsibility than I had yesterday," he said.
