In today’s blog for National Volunteer Apreciation Week I’d like to showcase the Board of Trustees. These members of the department are responsible for all of the assets of the Highland Park Volunteer Fire Department Inc. These assets include everything from our 1919 American La France fire engine to our uniforms to the tables and chairs we sit at every meeting. They meet monthly prior to the departments business meeting to discuss the departments finances and give their recommendations on all expenditures. They also ensure that the departments assets are well maintained. The board of trustees is run by Chairman and Ex Chief Hector Malave. Other members that sit on the board include Ex Chief Larry Theil, Ex Chief Mike McMahon, Life Member Charlie Byrne, Life Member Pete Prodromo, FF David Seiden, with President John Byrne and Chief Jay Littman who sit in on the meetings. Thank you all for your hardwork and dedicated service.
If you see a volunteer firefighter this week remember to thank them for their service, it’s the little things that mean the most!
