Lark named Mundelein's new chief deputy fire chief
Mundelein swore in Bill Lark as its new chief deputy fire chief at a recent village board meeting.
Lark began his career serving the village of Mundelein in 1990 as one of the fire department’s paid-on-call employees; he began to serve as a firefighter and paramedic full time in January 1994. He was deputy fire chief for a little over a year and a half before his promotion to chief deputy fire chief.
“Bill is certainly well-qualified and has learned a great deal in the last 18 months,” Eric Guenther, Mundelein’s public safety director, said. "I’m confident in his abilities moving forward and that’s why it was my recommendation that he be promoted to fill this position of chief deputy fire chief.”
Lark has a bachelor of science in aeronautical studies from Embry-Riddle University and has completed Texas A&M University’s Enhanced All-Hazards Incident Management/Unified Command Program. He is also involved with the Lake County and McHenry County Dive teams.
