The Culver-Union Township Fire Department will have three new firefighters soon.
Fire Chief Terry Wakefield told the Culver Town Council last week that one member has passed all of the background checks and testing so he’s able to be added to the roster. Wakefield added that two others have applied and will enter several months of training.
This will put the roster up to 18 which helps the sliding number of firefighters on the department. There were several that left the department in the past six months for a variety of reasons and Wakefield has been working to fill the void since those firefighters resigned.
