Marlan Morris Retires

Comments: 0

Marlan Morris was hired November 21, 1987 by the Roanoke Fire Department. Marlan is retiring as the Fire Marshal of the Roanoke Fire-EMS Department and is taking with him a lot of prevention and investigation experience. Congratulations on your retirement Marlan. Administration had a going away party for Marlan the other day. I did not make it, but I hear that it was humorous.

This has been a busy week of retirements. Mike Overacker, Cecil Boyd, and Marlan Morris all have retired this week. All these retirements add up to a bigger recruit school than Roanoke has experienced in the past several years. I believe the magic number is 17 recruits this year. Of course you have to remember that Roanoke County and Salem have recruits in the school as well. I have also heard rumor of Lynchburg Fire-EMS Department actually having recruits in our recruit school. I do not know if this is true, but you never know.
