Maytag Salutes: Robert Winkler III

10 May, 2016

HerosWinnersFinals-16

Name: Charles “Robert” Winkler III

Hometown:

Why we are saluting Robert:

Robert Winkler been fighting fires for nearly 30 years after becoming a volunteer at the age of 18. He’s been a member of the Cardiff Volunteer Fire Company for nearly 25 of those years, serving as Lieutenant, Captain, Assistant Chief, and Chief of the company. Rob was Elected as Egg Harbor Township Fire Department Deputy Chief in 2015 and Chief in 2016.  Oh, and this is all why having a regular “day job” as a Union Pipe-fitter, and being a husband and father of two.

As a fire Chief, Rob likes to lead by example, never asking any of his fellow firefighters to do anything he’s not willing to do himself.  He’s still ready to grab the business end of a hose or pull someone from a burning car when needed.
