Wanted: More Highland Township Firefighters
The fire department has received a federal grant to recruit more firefighters.
The article states that the money will come from a FEMA Staffing and Fire Emergency Response 4-year grant and will be used to recruit and train new firefighters.
Township Fire Marshal Doug Bourgeois has been given a new role of recruitment and retention coordinator, according to the article. He will visit local high school career days and events to try to attract more people to sign up to be paid on-call firefighters.
The grant allows the fire department to hire five more firefighters for the next four years, the article states.
