Maslowskis honored as ‘Champions of Fire Safety’

HEBRON – Jim and Cheryl Maslowski were honored Wednesday night at the Hebron Village Council meeting as “Champions of Fire Safety.”

Mayor Mike McFarland presented a resolution to the Maslowskis for their “commitment to safety and genuine concern for others.” The longtime Hebron residents recently renovated a rental home in Hebron. That renovation included installing smoke detectors. Recently a furnace motor in the home caught fire while the occupants were sleeping. The smoke detectors woke the family up and they escaped without injury. McFarland’s resolution stated, “Jim and Cherly’s commitment to safety and genuine concern for others should be an example for all of us.”

Hebron Fire Chief Clifford Mason and Chief Ken Klouda, Chief of the State Fire Marshal’s Prevention Bureau, were present for the award.

In other business Wednesday evening, Village Council will continue to meet at 6:30 on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month. Council’s Combined Committees Meeting will meet at 6 p.m. on the Monday between the two council meetings.
