Fire department ceremonies mark trustees March meeting
March 4 proved a banner day for the Springfield Township Fire Department, which dedicated Station No. 3, placed a new fire truck into service and added four fulltime personnel.
Fire Chief Barry Cousino welcomed a packed house of residents, firefighters and their families to the Holloway and Garden roads fire station, a special venue for the township trustees meeting.
“This is such a great attendance,” he said, adding that they gathered at the station for several reasons, one of which was to recognize the “man of the hour,” retired Fire Chief Larry Huffman.
“We are not always good at tooting our own horn, but we’ve been trying to do a better job of that,” he said.
The fire chief credited Mr. Huffman for his service to the township.
The retired chief was part of the Springfield Township fire department for 41 years, joining in September 1960.
