At the January meeting of the Tallmadge Lions Club, Tallmadge Fire Chief Mike Passarelli and Deputy Chief Ben Stasik presented an educational program on the status of the Tallmadge Fire Department.
To show support and appreciation for the work of these first responders, Tallmadge Lions presented 60 pairs of extrication gloves to Passarelli and Stasik.
The gloves provide firefighters and EMS personnel an extra degree of protection on emergency scenes. Community support of Lions' fundraising projects made the gift possible.
