New fire chief confirmed by council

(Rockville-AP) -- On a vote of 9-to-zero, the Montgomery County
Council is confirming the new fire chief.
Tom Carr gets the job as leader of the county's career
firefighters, replacing Roger Strock, who is retiring. Carr was
picked last month by County Executive Doug Duncan.
Carr began as a career firefighter in Montgomery in 1978. He
went on to help form the county's Collapse Rescue Team, and also
served on the Maryland Urban Search and Rescue Team, which helped
out at the Pentagon following the terrorist attack.
