The Morton Grove Village Board on Nov. 8 confirmed the appointment of Ralph M. Ensign as the new fire chief. Ensign’s first day was Nov. 15. He was recommended for appointment by village staff following a “wide recruitment process” that included 22 applicants.

Ensign is also an assessor and evaluator for the Center for Public Safety Excellence, a nonprofit organization that assists fire departments with accreditation and education programs.

Morton Grove Fire Chief Frank Rodgers retired last spring after 31 years with the department. He had held the position of fire chief since 2016.
