    • BOB WALL STEPS DOWN AS FIRE CHIEF: TOM DOHERTY NEW CHIEF
      Fishers Island Gazette
      February 1988, Page 1

      Bob Wall stepped down this winter after almost 15 years as chief of the Fishers Island Fire Department.
      "After so many years, it's time for a change," said Mr. Wall. "I'd like to spend more time around the house."
      Mr. Wall is being succeeded by Tom Doherty, who took over as fire chief on January 1. Mr. Doherty, general manager of Gada Contracting, is a 14 year veteran of the fire department. He has most recently served as first assistant.
      Mr. Wall became fire chief in 1972. With the exception of two years in the early 80's when he temporarily stepped down, Mr. Wall has been fire chief ever since.
      "There have been a lot of changes over the years," Mr. Wall said. "The biggest change is in the medical area. The fire department used to just fight fires. But a big part of the fire department is now medical."
      Many members of the fire department are now trained as emergency medical technicians (EMTS). Mr. Wall estimates that being fire chief takes 10 to 12 hours a week.
      "There is a lot of responsibility to the job," Mr. Wall said. "While I was fire chief, we never lost a man. It isn't as if I did anything special but that is a good feeling."
      Unlike mainland fire departments, the F.I. fire department cannot rely on mutual aid for support from other departments in any fire. "We are all on our own over here," he said. "We have to take care of every emergency ourselves."
      Mr. Wall recounts the most dramatic events during his tenure as chief were the fire at The Laughlin House in the early 70's and the search on Long Island Sound for two Pirates Cove employees in blizzard conditions in the winter of 1978.
      Mr. Wall who now works for the F.I. Water Department after many years as a mechanical contractor, said he will remain active in the Fire Department.
      Mr. Doherty says he does not envision any changes in the department. "Bobby has done an excellent job over the years," he said. "I'll try to maintain the good work he has done."
      Mr. Doherty received a quick initiation. There were two runs on the Sea Stretcher for medical emergencies on his first day as chief.
