Yesterday Chief Heerema spent the day at the state house talking with legislators about the current Fire department issues and current bills. This legislative day at the state house was hosted by the Indiana Fire Chiefs Association. While at the statehouse, our local region Fire Chiefs from LOFS, Chesterton, St. John, Dyer, and Schererville, had the opportunity to sit in on the House of Representatives session and watch HB 1219 (PFAS bio monitoring) pass unanimously. Congratulations Representatives Baurer, Andrade, Olthoff & Frye. These events hosted throughout the year are truly beneficial to have the one on one time to bring up the ever changing needs to our local and state representatives to bring an impact back to our local communities.
