Culver-Union Township Fire Chief Receives Firefighter Applications

Culver-Union Township Fire Chief Terry Wakefield told the town council members last week that he’s received three applications for firefighters.

The fire department has suffered from a dwindling roster of firefighters and Wakefield has been soliciting for applications from Culver or Union Township residents for the past year hoping to gather interest in training to be a firefighter.

Wakefield noted that one person is in class right now that passed the first module of testing and he will go through Hazmat training and follow with the availability to ride on the fire truck.

Several positions remain open at the fire department. For more information or for an application, call the Culver Town Hall at 574-842-3140.
