Closed meeting held on Fairplay Volunteer Fire Co.

November 18, 2008

County public safety officials on Tuesday afternoon met with the Washington County Commissioners in a closed session.

Kevin Lewis, director of the Washington County Division of Fire and Rescue Services, and Glenn Fishack, president of the Washington County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association, attended the meeting.

The meeting was to address issues surrounding the Fairplay Volunteer Fire Company, Fishack said.

On Tuesday, Nov. 11, several Fairplay firefighters were told their membership was not being renewed, The Herald-Mail has reported.

Fishack and Lewis have said the Fairplay area still is well-covered in terms of fire and rescue services.

Fairplay's fire company is "still functioning as a department" and still running calls, with companies from surrounding areas providing dual coverage, Lewis said.
