EMS volunteers honored in GS

GREEN SPRINGS – Local members of Seneca County EMS were honored Monday for their work in one of the busiest squads in the county.

The volunteers were recognized individually by Seneca County EMS Director Ken Majors and given a certificate and medal, among other things, in thanks for their contributions to the village.

Majors also expressed Green Springs’ need for more volunteers to whom to pass the torch.

“We’re not getting any younger, as you can tell by the grays in our hair,” Majors said. “We need the youth of the community to step up.”

To wrap up the ceremony, Majors announced Green Springs will be receiving a new ambulance in April to replace its current 1997 model.

In other business, Village Administrator John Miller announced that equipment was rented to remove dirt from the baseball diamond in order to solve the problem with standing water on the field and in the dugouts.

Council members also announced they will donate $2,000 to the Sandusky County work-release program for assistance in tasks throughout the village during the summer.

In other matters, the council declared Dec. 12 “Henrietta Wahl Day,” in honor of her 100th birthday, and announced the village met EPA regulations for water sampling for 2013.
