CORTLAND, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — It was a final sendoff from those with the Cortland Fire Department for their chief and Friday was his last day on the job.
A special ceremony was held for Chief Charles Glover as he walked out of the firehouse for the final time. Cortland Mayor Brian Tobin, along with other city officials and members of the public, gathered to give him a final salute.
Glover tells us he’s proud of the 42 years he served the city.
“I think the biggest message we need to remember is that we work for the citizens and the community and protecting them and at the end of the day, I wanna make sure that my firefighters go home to their families at the end of the day,” Glover said.
Glover’s career goes all the way back to 1977 when he was just a volunteer.
