Michael Cox named acting Anne Arundel fire chief

Veteran Anne Arundel County firefighter Michael E. Cox Jr. was named acting fire chief Wednesday, following the retirement of Chief John Robert Ray.

"Chief Cox has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to personal and professional development and brings a level of energy to the position that is critical to our county's future," County Executive Laura Neuman said in a prepared statement.

Cox, a division chief with more than 25 years of experience in career firefighting, has held numerous positions throughout the department.

The search for a permanent chief is underway, county officials said.
