Miami Township Fire-Rescue honors 12 service members
- Published: November 19, 2014
Last week Miami Township Fire-Rescue honored eight graduates of the most recent fire fighter training class and swore in eight new volunteers to their ranks in a ceremony held Thursday, Nov. 13, at Fire Station 81 on Corry Street.
Recognized as new fire fighters were Cary Brewer, Evan Frantz, Zachary Kimmet, David Meister, Nicholas Miller-Jacobson, Anthony O’Reilly, Joseph Panuto and Jacob Smith. This year’s class was bigger than the Township facility could accommodate. But thanks to a state grant through Clark State Fire Services Program Director Steve Goheen, Miami Township Fire Chief Colin Altman was able to train that group free of charge at Clark State’s facility.
Four members of that class joined an additional four in becoming members of the Miami Township Fire-Rescue squad. Sworn in last week were Brewer, Kimmet, O’Reilly and Jacob Smith of the first group, plus Lee Caterson, Cheri Johnson-Brewer, Brandi Ledford and Michael Troy Weathers.
