Sixty One More!

The Columbus Fire Training Academy was the venue on Friday, January 27 for the graduation ceremony of 61 recruit firefighters. Having completed 32 weeks of intensive training, passing 29 exams and gaining several certifications, this group is ready to begin their duties “on company”.  The ceremony was extremely well attended with more than 400 family and friends in the audience. Following the service, Box 15 hosted the reception in the main training facility, where family members could tour the facility. 

Thank You Washington Township!

Box 15 was honored with a Citizen’s Distinguished Service Award by Washington Township, at their annual employee dinner, Friday, January 20.  During 2011, Box 15 responded to 5 incidents with Washington, including working fires and training exercises.  Station 91 is also “home” to Rehab 2, which was donated to the club by the Township a few years ago.  We have a long working relationship and 3 box 15 members have completed their Citizen’s fire Academy.  Box 15 values our relationship with Washington Township and we sincerely appreciate this honor.
