It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Doug Knowlton of Marlborough Fire Department. He died late Monday afternoon, April 1, 2019.

Doug was a long-standing member of the North Central CT EMS Council. In 2003, Doug was appointed to North Central’s Board of Directors and Communications Committee representing the Town of Marlborough. He accepted the position as the CMED Communications Chairperson in 2016. It was important to him that each community appointed a representative to serve on the Communications Committee. Doug was appointed Secretary to the Board of Directors in 2018.

Doug easily shared his vast knowledge and experience in EMS and communications. He was very committed to his responsibilities and always looked for opportunities to improve and grow the EMS system.

Our condolences to his family and the Marlborough Fire Department. We will miss him.

R.I.P. Doug
