Chad Jenk­ins Mar­i­on Fire Depart­ment Engi­neer Hired Feb­ru­ary 26, 2008 Assigned to Sta­tion 6 and dri­ves Engine 6 and Lad­der 1

Chad Jenk­ins has been in the fire ser­vice since 1999. He is a mem­ber of the Mar­i­on Fire Depart­ment, and a vol­un­teer at Wash­ing­ton Town­ship Fire Department.

Jenk­ins saw a need to help both depart­ments by writ­ing a region­al grant for Ther­mal Imag­ing Cam­eras. He and Wash­ing­ton Fire Chief Aaron Knight sub­mit­ted the FEMA Assis­tance to Fire­fight­ers Grant last spring. This sum­mer, we received a call from U.S. Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Susan Brooks offi­cial­ly award­ing us with the grant. Wash­ing­ton Town­ship will receive $31,912 toward 2 new cam­eras and the Mar­i­on Fire Depart­ment will receive $95,736 toward 6 new cameras.

The suc­cess of the Mar­i­on Fire Depart­ment is built by fire­fight­ers like Chad Jenk­ins. His pas­sion and love for the job is exhib­it­ed by how hard he works. He is self-moti­vat­ed and always look­ing for work to do or projects to start. I think it was great that he was able to help us with our needs, and at the same time help Wash­ing­ton Town­ship with their needs. — Chief Geoff Williams, Mar­i­on Fire Department
