3 New CFD Engineers

Crete Fire Department has gained three new engineers this past year.

Engineer/Paramedic Bolda and Platt were promoted in April of last year, and Engineer/EMT Joyce received his promotion in late January of 2021.

Engineers are responsible for driving and placement of firefighting apparatus, finding hydrants and ensuring sufficient water supply.

“The engineers are the heart of the operation. It’s the most important job” Crete Fire Chief Michael Waterman said.

Bolda, Platt and Joyce bring the total of Crete FD engineers to seven.
