Cross Hill Community Meeting: Opportunities to Serve on the Fire Department Board and as a Volunteer Firefighter
January 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Cross Hill is gearing up for a special community meeting on January 23 at 6 pm. The meeting will take place at the Cross Hill Fire Department located at 1936 Watts Bridge Rd. The primary focus of this gathering is to address the crucial matter of selecting new members for the Cross Hill Fire Department Board.
Michael Bolick, a resident of the Cross Hill community and former fireman, emphasized the significance of community involvement, stating, “Being part of the Fire Department Board is a tremendous responsibility and an opportunity to make a real difference in our community. It requires individuals who are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of Cross Hill residents.”
The meeting will include discussions about the roles and responsibilities of Fire Department Board members. The board plays a pivotal role in decision-making processes related to the fire department’s operations, ensuring it meets the needs of the community it serves.
A crucial aspect of the meeting is the upcoming vote to select new members for the 5-person board. To be eligible for consideration, interested individuals must be Cross Hill citizens. Those interested in serving on the board are encouraged to attend the meeting.
For further information regarding the Fire Department Board and the election process, interested individuals are encouraged to reach out to Bolick in advance of the meeting. He can be reached at (864) 547-7415.
In addition to the board member selection, Cross Hill is also putting out a call for volunteers to join the Cross Hill Volunteer Fire Department. This presents a unique opportunity for community members to actively contribute to the safety and well-being of their neighbors. Volunteering as a firefighter allows individuals to undergo training, learn valuable skills, and become an integral part of the emergency response team.
Residents interested in becoming volunteer firefighters are urged to reach out for more details on the requirements, training programs, and the process of joining the Cross Hill Volunteer Fire Department.
As the community comes together on January 23, the hope is that the meeting will not only fill the vacant positions on the Fire Department Board but also inspire a new wave of volunteers dedicated to serving the Cross Hill community.
