New Firefighters Bring Unique Skills
February 25, 2017
To ensure reliable and adequate protection for the community, the Butler Township Fire Department hired two full-time firefighter/paramedics in February 2017, essentially converting the positions from part-time to full-time.
Ryan Boon has been a part-time firefighter/paramedic for Butler Township for the last nine years. He has gained additional experience working part-time for other communities, as well. He is certified in swift water rescue, trench rescue, rope rescue and confined space rescue.
Todd Flohre has served as a part-time Butler Township firefighter/paramedic for the past five years, and gained additional experience working part-time for Washington Township. He is a certified technician for ice rescue and hazardous materials.
“With their highly specialized skill sets, Ryan and Todd are excellent additions to our staff,” said Fire Chief Dan Alig.
