City of Middletown- Division of Fire

Great news!  I am very excited to share this with you…

The Middletown Division of Fire has been notified by FEMA that they have been awarded $337,690 from the Assistance to Firefighters Grant.  The grant awarded is to replace their entire stock of SCBA’s -air pack breathing equipment.  Their current breathing apparatus used in firefighting operations are set to expire over the next year.  This grant takes a huge chunk out of the City’s deferred maintenance cost budget.  Chief Lolli is extremely appreciative of the support the Division of Fire has received from the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA to enhance the safety of the citizens of Middletown and the firefighters.  Chief Lolli is also very proud of the team that worked on the grant ; Firefighters Chris Klug, Ryan Pennekamp and Ben Bultman; Assistant Chief Tom Snively; Captain Rob Curry.  These guys are the BEST!!

And as always…a HUGE thank you to our Department of Public Safety for their work and dedication in making Middletown a better place to live!

  1. Mr. Adkins:

    After reading the article referenced below, I am appalled that the Middletown city planning commission denied the rezoning request from the Kettering Health Network.

    For quite some time the Premier Health/Atrium Medical Center has been buying medical practices, clinics, surgery centers etc., so that they control most medical care and have reduced competition in Middletown.

    Atrium is now engaged in a dispute with a major health insurance company over coverage for it’s policy holders because of Atrium’s prices.

    Approval of KHN’s plan to provide full service care to the citizens of Middletown would bring much needed competition and convenience to the area.

    Please consider the needs of Middletown’s citizens over the wishes of Atrium’s leadership.

    I strongly urge you and all members of Middletown City Council to reverse the planning commission’s decision and do everything you can to bring this much needed facility to our community.

    Respectfully,
    Ray Cooley
