Fisher's Eagle Project
February 27, 2006
the heart of the many activities in which Providence
District residents engage lies the desire and commitment
of individuals who want to better our communities. I
want to bring to your attention John Fisher, a Mantua
resident, whose Eagle Scout Projects' objective was
match the actual locations of fire hydrants in the area
between, Route 236 and Route 50 and Prosperity and Pickett
Road, with the locations shown on the street maps that
Fire station 23 uses when they respond to fire and emergencies
It will help the fireman find the fire hydrants
The citizens will benefit also."
Fisher's project not only went according to plan but
the original search area was also expanded beyond Mantua.
Mr. Fisher discovered that of the 215 fire hydrants
shown on the map, 8 new ones were found and that 3 existing
ones were actually missing. His findings were explained
on a fire and rescue map and submitted, together with
his report, to Fire Station 23. Furthermore, Mr. Fisher
then went on to clear the debris and clutter surrounding
25 fire hydrants!
Fisher exemplifies Providence District residents who
desire and are committed to better our communities.
Therefore, I would appreciate the Board's unanimous
support in welcoming Mr. Fisher to the Board, at a future
date, to accept a Certificate of Recognition for his
noteworthy commitment and dedication to the Mantua community
and Fire Station 23, at an appropriate date.
