Lakewood update

It is official that the Woodstock Fire Rescue District will takeover fire protection for the town of Lakewood. For the near future, the Lakewood Fire Department name will remain in existence and the uniforms, bunker gear, and apparatus will still carry that name. Many of the full-time and part-time Lakewood employees will be employed by Woodstock and might work from either of the Woodstock stations or the Lakewood station. Some of the Lakewood apparatus is owned by American Emergency Services and will leave at the first of the year when Woodstock takes over.
