The Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District visited the Highland County District Library on June 10 as “local heroes.” Branden Jackman, public information officer, explained the importance of fire safety and preparedness to an audience of over 100 children and parents. After watching a firefighter don his equipment, the children explored the fire and EMS vehicles and received fire safety books and hats. Lyn Tone, library employee, presented the Paint Creek crew with a donation collected by the library staff for wearing jeans on weekends. The donation will be given to the Dave Knapke Benefit Fund in honor of Knapke, a Williamsburg Township fire lieutenant who collapsed on duty and later died.
