The Allentown Fire Department is seeing a few changes at the top.

During a ceremony Friday morning, Bob Kudlak was officially sworn in as the interim fire chief and Assistant Chief Lee Laubach was promoted to deputy chief of operations.

Mayor Ed Pawlowski also announced that Laubach will serve as the head of the city's new emergency management team.

Pawlowski said the team is made up of a number of city officials who will respond to emergency situations in Allentown.
