Making History

County Executive Leggett greeted Battalion Chief Dorcus “Dee” Howard Richards to honor her for 27 years of service to the County and the Department of Fire and Rescue Service. Earlier this year, Chief Howard Richards received special recognition from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) during the NAACP’s 41st Annual Freedom Fund Dinner and was recognized as the first African American female promoted to the rank of Battalion Chief in the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service.
