“It was a terrific evening, celebrating and recognizing the hard work and many hours of volunteer service of our membership base,” Brown, CES president, said. “We are fortunate to have such a dedicated group of professionals who contribute so much of their time and energy to the Chatham community.”

Serving their second year in their positions are Captain Joe Korkuch, Operations Lieutenant Steve Davenport, Equipment Lieutenant Bryan McGookin, Finance Vice President Tom Patterson, Facilities Vice President Jim Martin, Personnel Vice President Missy Cotter and Secretary Evan Skinner.
In addition, 34 members of the Chatham Emergency Squad were recognized for earning 100 Length of Service Awards Points (LOSAP) which is a New Jersey State incentive program recognizing volunteers who actively serve their regular and weekend shifts, and positively contribute through additional volunteer hours.

The emergency squad is an all-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.
