Bensenville Fire Protection District Batallion Chief Larry Karp is ready to settle into a recliner after 28 years on the job. But he'll be settling into a recliner in the Pacific Northwest and his fire radio won't be far behind. Karp, 50, officially will retire from the Bensenville district on March 7. On March 28, he will begin his new $62,500-a year job as chief of the Quilcene Volunteer Fire Department in Jefferson County, Wash.
