Centreville names new fire chief

A veteran firefighter was named Centreville’s new fire chief Monday.
Chris Loker, a 20-year firefighter, will take over the department following the retirement of 13-year chief Ed Rangler last month.
Loker began working at Centreville Fire Department in 2008, serving three years as lieutenant and three with Centreville Rescue.
Previously, he spent 10 years on the Marcellus Fire Department, serving as lieutenant and captain. He was awarded its “Firefighter of the Year” honor in 2001.
Loker said he plans to regularly attend municipal and fire-related meetings. He said he will reduce the budget by elimination of duplicate services, and he also seeks to improve inter-departmental training.
Loker, a graduate of Constantine High School and Glen Oaks Community College, works at Weber Specialties in Schoolcraft as a tool-and-die maker.
