Lakewood Fire Commissioners issue proclamation recognizing the service of Charles V. Smith

During their meeting on Monday, April 8th, the Board of Fire Commissioners of Lakewood Fire District No.1 presented a Proclamation to the Smith Family, in recognition of the dedicated service of Volunteer Firefighter Charles V. Smith.

Charles V. Smith became a member of the Lakewood Fire Department in 1965, when he joined Engine Company #1. He served proudly for more than 45 years as a Firefighter, Company Treasurer, Department Chaplain, Secretary of the Lakewood Fireman’s Relief Association and was elected as the Ocean County representative for the New Jersey State Fireman’s Association Executive Committee.

“In addition to his volunteer service to the Lakewood Fire Department, Charles volunteer spirit and enthusiasm involved him in other civic organizations within the Township including, but not limited to, Lakewood First Aid Squad, Lakewood Heritage Commission, Deacon of the First Baptist Church of Lakewood and Evergreen Cemetery Association,” the Board of Fire Commissioners said.

“The Board of Fire Commissioners commends the devotion and valuable expertise of Firefighter Smith and extends its sorrow and prayers to his family.”
