The City of Lambertville has hired Christopher Sorrentino as deputy fire official. 

Sorrentino will be helping Fire Official Frank Ur complete fire safety inspections of commercial properties, per Mayor Andrew J. Nowick. 

Sorrentino will work on a part-time basis and is only hired for a three month period from April 1 to June 30. He will not work more than 10 hours a week. 

A longtime New Jersey resident, Sorrentino is also the fire prevention officer for the nearby Clinton Township and is the co-lead instructor for Fire Inspector and Fire Official training at Hunterdon County Emergency Services Training Center. He’s served in the fire service since 2002.

The city fire official’s responsibilities will include overseeing state-mandated fire safety programs and inspections of businesses and residences, the mayor said.

The city’s fire official is separate from the Lambertville Fire Department, which is headed by Chief Mike Barlow. The Lambertville Fire Department is composed of three full-time firefighters and 61 per diem firefighters.
