Tilton-Northfield fire chief accepts deputy post in Gilford
Ober, who has been fire chief since 2010, was at the center of a controversy with the district fire commission last year because he hadn't moved to town, though Ober explained that he had been unable to sell his New Hampton home because of the poor housing market.
"I just felt it was time to move on from all of that," he said.
Carrier was chief of the Tilton-Northfield department from 2003-2010.
"The fire departments are roughly the same size, but there's a lot of new things to learn, and I'm very much looking forward to it," Ober said.
