Valley Fire Board has agreed to place a 6.3 mill, 5-year renewal levy on the November 6, 2007 ballot. This is at the current rate of the expiring levy.

The Board approved hiring the following new members: John Sternad is from Brecksville, and is a member of their department. He is a paramedic and firefighter 2. Joe Varga is from Boston Heights and an EMT-B, firefighter 2. Following in his father’s footsteps, Michael Goodrich of Fairlawn is an EMT-B and firefighter 2. Michael’s father is Fairlawn Chief Glen Goodrich.

Congratulations to Mike Kamp who completed his paramedic training and passed certification. Michael is now an EMT-P.

The air packs are in, and all of the training has been completed. The air packs were purchased with a grant of approximately $42,000 from Senator Mike DeWine’s Firefighter Investment and Response Enhancement Program. The unused funds from the grant will be used to purchase additional spare parts for the equipment.
