The four new firefighters were hired from the Civil Service list following background investigations and interviews, Loigman says.
The new hires are: Robert Cook Jr. of Lakewood, who currently serves as a volunteer firefighter with the Lakewood Fire Department; Joe Johnson of Jackson, who currently works for Lakewood EMS; Thomas Schick of Lakewood, who currently serves as a volunteer firefighter with the Lakewood Fire Department; and John Sonner of Beachwood, who currently serves as volunteer firefighter in Beachwood.
Loigman says the Department is in the process of hiring another two full-time firefighters, as was originally planned, by working through the list.
The new employees are set to begin May 1. [TLS]
