SG Fire Dept. loses deputy chief
Fire Chief will take on duties
by Susan O’Neill
Sugar Groveâ€”Deputy Chief Dave Adler left the Sugar Grove Fire Department last month, and Fire Chief Marty Kunkel said there are no plans to replace him.
â€œI will absorb his duties and responsibilities,â€ Kunkel said.
Although Adler’s contract had been renewed, Kunkel said the department is in a very tight budget year and everyone is looking for ways to trim expenses.
â€œWe’re all in difficult times,â€ he said. â€œNext year’s going to be tough.â€
Kunkel said that Adler moved to California to visit his daughter and to explore the opportunities there.
â€œHe’s a great loss for us,â€ Kunkel said. â€œWe’re going to miss him.â€
Adler was in charge of training and operations for the township fire department.
