The Chatham Emergency Squad (CES) held its annual Officer Installation Dinner Dance at the Madison Hotel in Convent Station on Saturday, February 11. The emergency squad is a volunteer organization providing emergency medical assistance and transport to Chatham Borough and Township residents and visitors 365 days a year. CES never charges for the service and is supported almost entirely through donations from the community.

Line officers this year are Captain Joe Korkuch, Operations Lieutenant Steve Davenport, Equipment Lieutenant Bryan McGookin and Training Lieutenant Mike Lemons.  Administrative Officers are President Rich Crater, Finance Vice President Tom Patterson, the Communications and Social VP Tim Brown, Facilities Vice President Jim Martin, Personnel Vice President Missy Cotter and Secretary Evan Skinner.

The Squad recognized several members for their years of service to the Chatham Emergency Squad including Rob Apati, Rich Crater and Sam Francis who have served for 15 years and Joe Korkuch and Jim Martin who have served for five years. Life Membership was bestowed upon Tim Brown, Mike Lemons, Teresa Binning and Matt Palmer for seven years of active service.

This year the Dick Richards Award for Excellence was given to Sam Francis. This rarely given award recognizes Sam's significant contribution to the operational excellence that he has imparted on the Squad. 

Several Township and Borough officials attended as well as  representatives from the Police and Fire Departments and neighboring emergency squads.  This year, CES wishes to thank the Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad for covering the Chathams for the evening.  

Said Communications and Social VP Tim Brown, "The hotel was a beautiful venue and everyone looked great; we always look forward to this once a year event to recognize our people."
