Questionnaire Responses Needed!

Click here to start the Questionnaire:  Executive Training Questionnaire

I am asking for your help in completing a questionnaire for a 6 month research project that I am required to complete as part of my Executive Development course for the Executive Fire Officer Program (EFO) at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland. 

The purpose of my research is to identify preferred delivery methods for executive level training that are suitable for officers of volunteer/combination fire departments. 

I am requesting information from those who are of a Lieutenant Officer rank or higher at full volunteer or combination fire departments within Ohio and/or Southeast Michigan.  For the scope and time limitation of this research project, my initial focus will be a 16 county area in Northwest Ohio. However, it is important to collect data from all counties as I plan to expand my research beyond this geographical area upon completion of my research paper. 

The 16 county area my research paper will focus on includes: Crawford, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Sandusky, Seneca, Williams, Wood, and Wyandot.

The survey is estimated to take approximately 10-15 minutes. The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, August 19th.  Please share this information and questionnaire link with anyone that meets the requirements stated above.  If you have any questions, please email me or call 419-680-4026.

Thank you!
Jason Conklin, Deputy Chief


Washington Township fire levy will be back on November 2016 ballot 

As you may have heard, the fire levy in Washington Township was denied at the Ohio Department of Taxation and was rolled back from the voted millage of 2.5 to 1.5 Mills that has been in place for the past five years because the ballot language was incorrectly reviewed by the county appointed legal council for Washington Township. The story below by NBC 24 news reporter Kayla Strayer was done in an effort to help us inform all of the Washington Township residents that the original 2.5 Mill levy that was on last year's November ballot will once again have to be placed on this year's November's ballot. We are again asking for your support!
