John Fisher's Eagle Project
February 27, 2006

Mr. Chairman:

At 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 the following:

"To 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 easily … The citizens will benefit also."

Mr. 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!

Mr. 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.
