Fire Communities Come Together

Share via email

Recently, southern Medina County Fire Departments, including Lafayette have been pretty busy with multiple incidents requiring numerous resources. Within the last 2 weeks, Lafayette has assisted neighboring Chatham Township Fire Department with a large brush fire in which 80+ acres burned as well as a house fire on Congress RD. Today, departments from Lafayette, Chatham, Westfield, Lodi, & Seville-Guilford took part in a mock motor vehicle accident to raise safety awareness for the recent upcoming 2015 Cloverleaf Prom. Just another way your fire departments are working for you!
