Fire Board members and Chief Jeff Passwater expressed their concern at the dwindling active roster for the Fire Department.
The roster is now down to 21 active members and already 7 times this year they have not had enough people available to respond to an emergency.
In such a situation other departments in the local area would be dispatched to provide cover and while this would take a few minutes longer we do not think it has compromised anyones emergency care.
Chief Passwater would like to see more people on the roster to enable the Fire Department to respond to all calls. Unfortunately there does not appear to be enough interest from people that work and live locally to be able to respond in an emergency.
If you have prior experience and would like to apply to the Lapel Stony Creek Township Fire Department you can find their contact details on their new website or via facebook.
