New Guy from Ohio
I'm a Senior FF/PM with LeRoy Fire Department, which is 20 miles east of Cleveland, Ohio. We cover a large township out of one station with both part- and full-time firefighters. We provide ALS, rescue, and HazMat, as well a fire protection for a mostly residential communnity. We have 2 Engines, 2 ALS rescue squads, 1 Tanker, 1 Grass Unit, 1 utility truck, and 1 Chief/Command Unit.

Welcome to a wonderful forum from another Ohio firefighter. I am a part-time firefighter on Alexandria-St.Albans Township Fire Department. We are a very small rural department about 35 minutes east of Columbus. If you've ever been to the Ohio Fire Academy, we're about 20 minutes from there. Take care and be safe. Jay

Welcome from New Hampshire. Although we are a long ways apart the departments are simular. We are also a fairly small dept. with both paid and call personnel. We also do ALS with Paramedics, we run a total of 3500 calls a year.

Just a note to say HI to all of the Ohio FF's. I started in the fire service in 1968 in Hudson, Ohio but I am now with the Sumter County Fire Dept. Cherryvale Station 1.
We cover about 70 sq miles as first responce and about 260 sq miles as structure responce. Our county system sends 3 station to all structures so we do keep busy. Cherryvale 1 responds to between 350 - 400 call per year with 20 firefighters. We look for this to increase this year with some of the building going on.
Hope all you "yankees" (as I am called all the time) keep safe and "PUT THE WET STUFF ON THE RED STUFF"

Another Northeastern Ohio FF checking in to say hello. Gotta stick together (what's up with "go Steelers"?) (Browns will be up there in another couple years...) Anyway, how to go about hiring part-timers? I'm moving out to Lake County in a month or two and am looking for a new part-time dept. to work for. Do you have to move into LeRoy? I'm moving to Willoughby, is that still to far? Anyway, welcome to the forums and hope to hear from you sometime. Go Tribe!
