Mayor Brian Tobin presented Glover with a certificate during Tuesday’s meeting of Cortland Common Council to commemorate his more than three-decade long tenure with the department.
Glover began his career at the Cortland Fire Department as a volunteer firefighter in 1977. Nine years later, he was hired as a career firefighter and was later promoted to fire captain and deputy chief of code enforcement.
“Through those 40 years, I’ve been haunted by memories, many are horrific,” Glover said. “However, those memories are offset by numerous memories of triumphant successes.”
Glover oversees a department that responds to approximately 2,600 alarms annually. The Cortland Fire Department consists of more than 60 volunteer and career firefighters, according to its website.
