Danbury Fire Chief Geoff Herald is planning to retire. He's given word to the Mayor that he will be leaving the Department as of mid-July. A Danbury Fire Department Dispatcher has also been promoted to Communications Coordinator. Mayor Mark Boughton said at the City Council meeting Tuesday that Steven Rogers job will be changing as the 911 Center moves to civilianization.
Rogers was commended for rolling out a complex integration of a new software system and the new NexGen Dispatch program.
Rogers is an Emergency Telecommunicator and a state Fire Instructor. He will be responsible for the radios, computers and inter department communications. He'll also be handling social media sites and public information details.
Rogers started his career on October 4, 1999 as a Firefighter and was promoted to Dispatcher in January 2011.
