Meet the New Officers

Following the appointment of the new Chiefs came the new appointment of new officers. These officers are selected through a very tough process. Some of them were reappointed to their current positions that they held before the new Chief, one of them moved up in the chain of command, one who held an officers position years ago was reappointed to an officer and another firefighter was appointed to an officers position for the first time. The Rossford Fire Department is looking forward to working under these new officers and is very excited for the future.

The new officers stand alongside Mayor Neil McKinnon at the City Council meeting where they were sworn in. Not pictured is Lt. Ryan Hennessey.
