Behind them stands the fire department, with multiple members also serving on the rescue squad or as police officers. Town Council appointed Mullins as the full-time fire chief May 28. In recent years, Phillips has recommended making the position full-time. He did not pursue the job due to a lack of time, he said.  KENNETH CROWSON PHOTO
