FOSTORIA - A legacy of sorts was presented by the family of Rick Reinhart to the city of Fostoria with the fire department being the main beneficiary.
Reinhart, father of paramedic Fred Reinhart, died in late December and in his honor the family collected nearly $1,000 which was donated to the city and used for the purchase of a saw. The saw may be utilized for removing parts of motor vehicles for entry and recovery and other applications.
