Slagle-Harietta Fire Department Selects New Chief

A Wexford County fire department selected a new chief.

The department in the Village of Harietta covers the village and the surrounding Slagle township.

Nearly two weeks ago, the department’s chief resigned.

Many volunteer fire fighters followed, effectively closing the department.

Last night the Slagle-Harietta Fire Department board selected Michael Erwin, the Boon Fire Chief to head the department.

They’re looking at replacing some equipment and hope to be up and responding to calls soon.

Meanwhile other township departments are covering Slagle-Harietta’s calls.
