Ed Ross, who stepped down recently as Treasurer of the Montgomery County Fire Chief’s Association after serving in that capacity for 40 years, was honored for his decades of service at the organizations meeting in March at Flourtown Fire Company, Station 6.

Montgomery County Commissioner Leslie Richards presented Ed with a proclamation signed by all three commissioners and the Fire Chief’s Association presented his a plaque in appreciation for his service.

Ed joined the fire service in 1949 and served as a firefighter and line officer at several companies in New York and New Jersey before moving to Whitpain Township in 1965.
