Retired Fire Chief Daniel H Mercure Awarded Chief Emeritus Status

Chief Daniel H Mercure (awarded Chief Emeritus Status) served the Rockwood Fire Department for 40 years retiring in late 2013 with his son Daniel M Mercure being appointed upon his departure from the department.

Fire Chief Emeritus is an honorary title for retired Fire Chiefs who have meritorious service to their community and the fire service profession. Fire Chief Emeritus is earmarked for those retired chiefs who have had renowned careers, regardless if paid or volunteer, and whose momentous contributions set them apart from their peers. This translates to our retired Fire Chief Daniel H Mercure being allowed to be called "Fire Chief Forever".

Fire Chief Frank Hinzman retired 1997 also has been honored with the Chief Emeritus Status.  Thank you both for dedicated distinguished careers.
