After 32 years of service with Buffalo Grove, Deputy Fire Chief Bill Wagner will retire July 2 and be replaced by Larry Kane, who comes from the Glenview Fire Dept.

Wagner was appointed deputy chief in Buffalo Grove in 2015 and is currently the chairperson of the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) Division 1 OPGS Committee, which has a regional influence on mutual aid operations in the fire service.

After an application and assessment process, Kane has been chosen to be the next deputy chief in Buffalo Grove, effective June 20. Kane comes from the Glenview Fire Dept. where he served for 21 years, most recently as a battalion chief. His other previous professional experiences include two years as the fire chief for the Harvard Fire Protection District and 15 years of fire service instruction at McHenry Community College.
