January 22, 2017 What's New at IAFF 1813
Last night Members from Chambersburg Police Department and Chambersburg Fire Department were honored for their outstanding service to the community by the members of VFW Lodge 1599. Our very own Brother in Red Firefighter Tony Albright and our Brother in Blue Officer Patrick Hinds both received awards. All the members of IAFF Local 1813 want to congratulate both on their well deserved recognition for their service. Job well done Brothers!
With the New Year on the horizon, along with it comes change. At last nights monthly meeting of IAFF Local 1813, the senior members passed the torch and swore in a new generation of local officers. It cannot go without saying, it feels as if it is an end of an era however all the members of Local 1813 would like to congratulate both President Patrick Martin and Treasurer Jim Pickings for all their hard work and dedication over the last 18 years. Our Brothers have successfully lead and fought for the betterment of our local and its members. They say "Always leave it better than the way you found it". These two brothers are the epitome of that saying. The officers and members of Local 1813 are forever indebted to you for all of your hard work and dedication over the years and we look forward to your continued support and assistance to our local. Job well done Brothers!
