Leetonia fire, EMS departments seeking firefighters, EMTS

LEETONIA- The Leetonia fire and EMS departments are seeking firefighters and EMTs.

Fire Chief Larry Hephner Jr. said the departments are seeking volunteers who will be compensated for each call to which they respond. Applications are available at Village Hall.

Hephner said the departments have experienced a recent drop in their rosters, but that service has not been affected. Volunteers may or may not have training. Those without will receive training in their desired position, he said.

Officers for the EMS Department will be named this week. Scott Garlough has resigned as EMS director, Hephner said.

For information about becoming a firefighter or EMT contact the fire hall’s non-emergency line at 330-427-2310.
