12/13/14 161 W - + 8 - 6 Apex Announces New Fire Chief

As this News & Observer story reports, the town of Apex has found their new Fire Chief. From Rocky Mount comes Keith McGee. He's a lifelong firefighter who started in high school in Wilkesboro. He's been a member of the Rocky Mount Fire Department since 1991, and presently (or now formerly) their Operations Division Chief. McGee was chosen out of 164 applicants from across the nation. He'll start later his month.

Retiring is Fire Chief Mark Haraway, who's led the department since June 2002. He's also been key contributor to the Wake County Fire Commission. Haraway was formerly Fire Chief of Elizabethtown, from January 2000 to June 2002. His fire service career also included the ranks of Captain at Wilmington (1995-1999) and Engineer and Training Officer at Wrightsville Beach (1990-1995). He's retiring this month after over thirty years in emergency service.

Congratulations to both! Welcome to Wake County, Chief McGee. And see you on the proverbial other side, Chief Haraway.
