Rogers is currently deputy fire chief in Falmouth, a department he has been with since 1980, when he started as a call firefighter. He has been a full-time firefighter and paramedic since 1986 and deputy chief since 1999. He earned the department’s Medal of Valor in 1995.

Rogers will replace Andy Paskalis, who retired as fire chief on June 30. The position has been filled on an interim basis by retired Wayland Chief Bob Loomer. 

Rogers was one of two finalists, along with Captain Tod Biggar from the town’s fire department.
