Cumberland Fire Chief Nick Anderson was recently recognized by Cumberland Firefighters Local 2722 for his many years of service, prior to taking the promotion to Chief. He began his career over 20 years ago at the former Cumberland Hill Fire Department, where he was a member of Local 2762 of the IAFF. After merging the four Cumberland fire districts into one entity in 2014, now known as the Cumberland Fire District, he then became a member of Local 2722, of which his father, Wendall Anderson, was a charter member serving the North Cumberland Fire District.
Chief Anderson was presented a certificate and a plaque recognizing his 21 years of service. Local 2722 executive board member, Fire Marshal Jason Lavallee, made the presentation in front of a large group of current and retired members after a meeting and holiday get together.
