Michael Overacker Retires

Comments: 0

Michael “Mike” Overacker is working his last day today. Mike started his career on October 22, 1982 and will be retiring with almost 24 years of service with the Roanoke Fire-EMS Department. Mike is a well known photographer who has been published numerous times through the years in newspapers and calendars. Mike took a lot of pictures of fires earlier in his career and continued doing so up to this day. Mike lost a lot of images when his studio was flooded during the flood of 1985. His website RoanokeFirefighters.com hosts some of those images. I might add that he updated that site for the first time in several years last night and added pictures from some fires earlier this year.

Mike’s last day is today, call him up and wish him well.

His most recent assignment was to the ARFF company at Station #10. He was promoted to Lieutenant several years ago. Congratulations on your career and best wishes during retirement.
