The Delhi Township Fire Department reopened the doors to two of it's fire stations on Monday.
After rejecting a larger fire levy last year, Delhi voters approved a 2.99 million dollar levy in May which reopened the doors to the township's Greenwell Road fire station. The cuts last year also closed the Rapid Run fire station and laid off 54 part-time firefighters. Thirteen of those firefighters were rehired to staff the Greenwell Road station.
The reopening of the station will result in response time being reduced from seven to eight minutes to four or five minutes says Fire Chief Harold "Mike" Edwards.
According to Edwards, the Greenwell station had more than half of the 23,000 fire and medical emergency runs.
