Bill started as a Mashantucket Pequot Firefighter before being hired by Norwich in 2003. Firefighter Wrobel has been recognized multiple times throughout his career for removing victims from burning buildings. He completed 18 years as a firefighter in the Rose City and will be attending fire marshal school in September.
