North Judson Fire Chief Addresses Recent Runs with Town Council

The North Judson-Wayne Township Volunteer Fire Department has been busy recently, according to Fire Chief Joe Leszek.

Chief Leszek gave Town Council members a brief synopsis of some of the department’s runs during Monday night’s meeting.

He explained, “From November 28th to December 30 we had 29 calls. We had nineteen medical, four 10-50 car accidents, one brush fire, two structure fires, one call was a gas odor call and then we had two power lines down.

He noted they’ve also fielded a number of calls in January so they were actually up to more than 30 calls, as of Monday night’s meeting.

Leszek asked the council members they would prefer to receive information from his department in paper copies or if they’d rather have it emailed over. The general consensus was to have the reports sent electronically.

The chief said he’d acquire everyone’s email addresses so he could do that from now on. Leszek mentioned that he will regularly send department breakdowns like the one he delivered during the meeting. He added he will also include how many runs the individual firefighters have responded to throughout the year.
