Wolfeboro chief heads region's fire chiefs group
Morrill is the fourth fire chief from Wolfeboro to serve as president of the association, a nonprofit professional organization dedicated to promoting more effective organization and functions of the firefighting service.
Former Wolfeboro chiefs that served as president include: Guy L. Foss and his brother, Charles "Zip" Foss, and Michael Howard.
Morrill has worked in the fire service for 38 years, the last nine as chief of the Wolfeboro Fire-Rescue Department. Previously, he served as its deputy chief and as lieutenant. He is also the town's emergency management director and forest fire warden.
He said the biggest responsibility as president of the NEAFC is working with members and officers on the annual Eastern States Exposition held in Springfield, Mass., in June 2014. The exposition includes vendors and suppliers, exhibits on the latest fire fighting technology, and professional development seminars. The association also raises and donates to nonprofit groups such as Shriners Hospitals.
Morrill, a Vietnam veteran, served for four years in the U.S. Marine Corps. He resides in Wolfeboro with his wife, Roxana.
