Newtown native Nicholas Weaver was sworn in on February 22, 2023, as the new assistant chief of the Newtown Fire and Emergency Services.


A large contingent of firefighters filled the meeting room inside the Newtown Township building as District Judge Mick Petrucci administered the oath of office to the township’s newest employee.


“It’s great to be coming back and seeing so many familiar faces,” said Weaver. “I’m looking forward to giving back to the place that has given me so much. They helped me get to where I am today in both my career and in life.”


After graduating from Council Rock High School in 2007, he earned a Bachelor’s degree in fire science and public safety from Holy Family College in 2012 and a Master’s degree in public safety administration from St. Joseph’s University in 2013.


Weaver was hired by Lower Southampton Township as a fire inspector. He later joined the Bensalem Fire Department as a career firefighter. He then took a job as the fire marshal and emergency management coordinator in White Marsh Township before accepting his new position with Newtown.
