New Lenox Fire District news

Excerpts from the HeraldNews.com:

The New Lenox Fire Protection District recently held a swearing-in ceremony during a Board of Trustees meeting to officially hire firefighter/paramedics as district employees.

Zach Cook and Joseph Schwinger were hired as a district firefighter/paramedics. Cook has been a firefighter with New Lenox for two and a half years and a firefighter for six years. Schwinger has been in the fire service for three years.

The fire district also welcomed New Lenox resident Kevin Kolosh as a commissioner, replacing Anne Mathews, who recently retired. Kolosh is the commander of detectives for the Calumet City Police Department.

In June, the NLFPD announced these recognition awards:

• Lt. Eric Chellios was the 2015 Officer of the Year. He has worked with the New Lenox Fire District since March 2008.

• Brent Havener was given the honor of Firefighter of the Year. He has been a firefighter with New Lenox for nine years.

• Candidate of the Year went to Brandon Toth, who had worked his way through the district’s cadet program and began his service as a firefighter for New Lenox a year ago.
