Excepts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

Evanston Fire Department Division Chief Dwight Hohl joined the fire department in 1992 as a firefigher/paramedic and recently  announced he is retiring after nearly three decades of service.

Over the years, Hohl took on challenging roles within the department. He mentored new paramedics in the field, served on the dive team and other committees. In October 2010, he became a captain and then division chief.

As the division chief of emergency medical services, Hohl implemented such programs as community CPR and electronic patient care reporting.

His final position with the fire department has been as division chief of EMA and the Fire Prevention Bureau, where he revised the city’s emergency management plan and provided training to city employees and residents.
