On Monday, July 3, 2017 a new employee started his first day as a full time career firefighter within Mantua Township Fire District. Firefighter Victor Torino started his one year probation period working a 24/48 rotating schedule within the district. FF Torino’s official Swearing-In will be Thursday, July 20, 2017 at 1900 hours at Mantua Township Fire Headquarters at 155 E. Union Avenue. All members and residents are urged to attend the event.
With FF Torino’s appointment, the Mantua Township Fire District will now be able to provide guarantee at least one apparatus to respond to any incident within the township 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The Fire District will maintain a three man crew 0600-1800 hours seven days a week and one man shift from 1800-0600 hours each day. As always we are looking to recruit volunteer members, and no incident can be handled by just one firefighter.
