Nearing the end of Thursday’s meeting to continue the discussion of the pilot program between the Warren Fire Department and the Pleasant Volunteer Fire Department at the Struthers Library Theater, Warren City Manager Nancy Freenock asked the public in attendance if they were leaning for or against expansion of the program.
There were several yeses and a few nods among those in attendance, who, while not large in number, made their voices heard.
“Why wouldn’t you do this?” Ron Hoffman of Pleasant Township said. “What’s the problem, Warren? Even if it’s break-even, but it increases response, whey are we not.”
Mike Lyon, a city resident, wholeheartedly supports the idea.
“To me, it seems like a no-brainer,” he said. “The plan is self-supporting.”
City resident A.J. Foriska noted that: “If I were in an accident in Pleasant Township, I would want the same response I would get in the city.”
According to Freenock, the agreement amendment will be before Warren City Council on Monday.
