“We are very blessed in Wood County to have the fire protection that is available,” said Steve Scholl, chief of the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department.
Scholl was the guest speaker at the recent meeting of the Fraternal Order of Police Associates Blennerhassett Lodge No. 3.
“We have 11 departments in Wood County, 10 of them are volunteer and the department in Parkersburg is the paid career department,” Scholl said. “The departments in this area get along with mutual agreements. Everybody works with everybody else, including the various police departments; we are very blessed,” Scholl said.
