Member Gets Promoted to Battalion Chief
On Monday, March 16, 2015, William E. McCorkle was promoted to the rank of Battalion Chief. Bill became a member with the Cherry Hill Fire Department in 1996 prior to moving to Mount Laurel. He joined the Mount Laurel Fire Department in 2000 and has been very active throughout the years. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration, and works locally in the private industry as an engineer. During the course of his volunteer fire service career, he has acquired a number of state fire certifications, which, coupled with his education, makes him a highly qualified and strong contributor, both operationally and administratively. In 2003, he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant, and in 2005, he was promoted to the rank of Captain. He is a strong advocate and spends much time mentoring our younger explorer and junior members as the program manager.
We appreciate his service to our community and department and wish him much success in his new position.

William Glassman, Jr. (center left) comes to us from Bridgeton and Kevin Tirotta (center right) comes to us from North Wildwood.
