The Beaver Township Fire Department received a special training exercise on Sept. 2 for propane fuel emergency responses and state Rep. Gary Glenn dropped in to watch and talk to the local firefighters.
“Meeting with local organizations, government boards and residents to discuss state issues and policies are an important part of the state representative duties,” said Rep. Glenn, R-Larkin Township. “There’s also many events and activities, such as this week’s Beaver Township Fire Department training I was invited to see.
“All of us appreciate the courage and commitment full-time and volunteer firefighters dedicate to keeping our families safe, and it’s these generous contributions of time, equipment and manpower that help prepare our firefighters here in Bay County.”
State Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Larkin Township, left, with Laura Chosay of Auburn, a volunteer firefighter for the Beaver Township Fire Department, during a fire safety training exercise Sept. 2 at the township hall. The Michigan Propane Gas Association coordinated with its Fire Training Instructor Brian Lincoln and Stanford LP Gas of Midland for the training session and propane fuel to run the exercise.
Other items on Rep. Glenn’s schedule this week included attending the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce breakfast; Midland County Board of Commissioners monthly meeting; a public forum at Northwood University; a meeting at the ARC of Midland; and the Midland County Farm Bureau's annual banquet.
