North Judson Fire Department Gets New Helmets, Coordinates Railroad Museum Safety Plan


North Judson-Wayne Township firefighters are getting some new equipment, thanks to Wayne Township. Fire Chief Joe Leszek told the town council Monday that the township had purchased 10 new helmets for the fire department. “All 25 members have brand new helmets in this last year,” he said, “so I want to thank Wayne Township for that.”

During his report to the town council Monday, Leszek also said that he’s planning to meet with officials from the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum to put together a safety plan for potential emergencies.

Leszek also reported that he was chosen to continue as fire chief, during the volunteer fire department’s yearly election of officers.
