Knox-Center Township Fire Chief Discusses Department

Knox-Center Township Fire Chief, Kenny Pfost, has been giving us fire prevention tips this week in observance of National Fire Prevention Week. Today, he talks a little about the Fire Department:

“It’s a 25 member department,” explained Pfost. “Shawn Kidder has been doing a great job with fire prevention. Actually, he did a headstart program and and elementary school on Monday.”

“Last year, we responded to 205 calls total. Not all of the calls were fires. We respond to a lot of medical calls as well with accident calls. We respond to accidents if extrication is needed. Sometimes it’s just for traffic control or to help the EMS.”

National Fire Prevention Week continues through tomorrow.
