Excerpts from the Dailyherald.com:

Mundelein Fire Department Deputy Fire Marshal Mark Gaunky, who’s been with the fire department for 28 years, is joining the University of Illinois at Chicago as its assistant director of fire and life safety.

Gaunky joined the department as a paid-on-call firefighter in 1989. He worked for the village’s public works department for a while and became a full-time firefighter in 1994. He was promoted to lieutenant in 2007 and to deputy fire marshal in 2014.

During his tenure, Gaunky twice helped rewrite the village’s fire prevention codes and revamp the curriculum for the state fire marshal’s inspector program, among other accomplishments.
