WARSAW — During the Warsaw-Wayne Fire Territory Board meeting held Sept. 1, the board took a brief moment to honor firefighter Kreg Warren.
He is the longest-serving firefighter in the history of the fire territory. He will have over 30 years of experience, including several years as a volunteer firefighter, upon his retirement in 2022.
He was presented with a plaque featuring a local media article honoring his experience.
“I want to recognize, along with Mr. Klondaris, the board and the mayor, Kreg Warren,” said Warsaw-Wayne Fire Chief Mike Wilson. “What we have for you, from the board, is your article framed … Thanks a lot, Kreg, you’ve been very close to me over the years.”
Wilson also noted that Warren’s family has a history of serving as firefighters, including his father and grandfather.
The board then approved the July expenditure reports for both the operating fund and equipment replacement fund.
To close, the board approved two different travel requests.
Jason Neher and Shade Kenney were approved to attend the Rural Engine Company Academy on Sept. 19 and 20. This event is being hosted by the Mentone Fire Department this year. Chief Wilson and EMS Coordinator Chris Fancil were approved to attend the IDHS Quarterly EMS Commission meetings.
