This afternoon, Annapolis Mayor Joshua J. Cohen named David Stokes as Chief of the Annapolis Fire Department. Stokes has over 30 years with the Anne Arundel County Fire Department and served as its Chief from November 2006 through October 2008.  During that time, Stokes managed a $100M budget. In addition, Stokes served on the Public Safety Committee for Cohen’s Idea Team.

Currently, Douglas Remaley has been serving as Acting Chief upon the resignation of Chief Jerome Smith several months ago. Remaley will remain as Deputy Chief until the City Council approves the appointment of Stokes.

One of the suggestions from Stoke’s committee was to move the Office of Emergency Management under the wings of the Fire Department which he will now lead.

Stokes is a native of Eastport and currently resides in Lothian.
