Craig Beach Volunteer Fire provides documentation

Posted: Updated:

CRAIG BEACH, Ohio  - Craig Beach Volunteer Fire Department has now provided documents that they say prove it's department has insurance, and workman's compensation coverage that is paid for and up to date.

This comes one day after the Palmyra Township Fire Chief Mark Garvin told 21 News that to contract for mutual aid with Craig Beach Fire would be a risk or liability they can't afford.

Chief Garvin said he did not believe Craig Beach Fire was covered by workman's compensation.

Charlene Yeager, the Secretary-Treasurer, Craig Beach Volunteer Fire Department provided the documents saying they would not jeopardize everything by not having insurance.

Craig Beach Volunteer Fire is providing the information saying they want to clear up any questions for the community they are ready to serve now and in the future.

The controversy started when two Afton Avenue homes in the Village of Craig Beach caught fire on Tuesday.

Some neighbors expressed concerns about the response time from neighboring volunteer fire departments, saying the felt the Craig Beach Fire Department that's just blocks away could have responded sooner.

Milton Township Volunteer Fire Department is currently contracted to serve Craig Beach.
