Union Firefighter/EMTs attend special training at BGSU

Six members of the Union Fire & Rescue Department attended this year’s State Fire School at Bowling Green State University.

More than 500 firefighters and EMS personnel from across the State of Ohio attended. BGSU and Nationwide Foundation offered 27 scholarships this year. Out of 150 applicants, Union Firefighter/EMT Jeremy Buckholtz (pictured) from the Union Fire Department was one of the awardees. 

Jeremy attended the Fire Tactics class, an intensive session on strategy and tactics. The students were taught practical and common-sense approaches to fighting structure fires.  This hands-on class was conducted in acquired structure in the Bowling Green area. 

The knowledge and experience gained will be an asset to the citizens of Union for many years to come.
