Possible Changes Ahead for Hereford First Responders
Written by Candace Perry, Correspondent
2017-12-23

            New leadership at the Seisholtzville Fire Company has prompted concerns among members of the Hereford Fire Company.

            That's what led to the company asking to be named "primary fire company" for the township at the Hereford Board of Supervisors' workshop meeting on Tuesday, December 19.

            Hereford Chief Josh Borowski said that his department had "some issues with the new chief," Christopher Lubenetski, who was appointed last week following the resignation of the former chief, Chris Arter. Borowski said that the "appointment of the new chief is awfully concerning" because of his lack of qualifications for the position.

            "I don't think the leadership has the ability to run a major incident," he said.

            Borowski said that his company voted to request the change to primary fire company for the township, mirroring a similar situation in Longswamp Township, where the Topton Fire Company was appointed primary company about a decade ago.

            Borowski added, "It's getting worse and worse. If we are responsible for handling calls everywhere we need to do it on our terms."

            Supervisors' Chairman John Membrino said that Seisholtzville needed to be involved in the decision making, and that the township solicitor would need to provide further input on the change. The discussion was tabled pending those discussions.

            In other emergency response news, supervisors voted to authorize changes to run cards submitted to the county Department of Emergency Services as the "municipal governing body."

            Hereford Fire Company member Dean Marks said that township residents should be aware that the "Help" number signs that many property owners in the township have on their properties haven't been used in 20 years and should be taken down.
