ONSUREZ SWORN IN AS NEWEST JONESVILLE FIREFIGHTER
Nicholas Onsurez took the Oath of Office and was welcomed as the newest member of the Jonesville Fire Department at the Jonesville City Council meeting on Wednesday night.  In addressing the Council, Deputy Fire Chief Rick Riggs noted that Nick has been an asset to the department during training an onboarding, due to his full-time career as a paramedic.  Onsurez has prior experience as a firefighter in New Mexico and recently completed his Michigan Firefighter I and II certifications.

CITY OF JONESVILLE BOARD AND COMMITTEE VACANCIES
The Jonesville City Council is currently accepting applications from individuals with a desire to serve their community on the Planning Commission, the Local Development Finance Authority (LDFA), or the Downtown Development Authority (DDA).

JONESVILLE FIREFIGHTERS EARN CERTIFICATIONS
The Jonesville Fire Department recently hosted Fire Instructor I training for area firefighters.  Jonesville Deputy Chief Rick Riggs, Assistant Chief Scott Lucas, Captain Nate Baker, and Sergeant Adam Rose successfully completed the requirements to earn the certification. 

The Fire Instructor I course includes 40 hours of classroom instruction, with each firefighter required to complete a written exam and an evaluated presentation that reflects their knowledge of instructing firefighting practices and techniques.  Significant time was required outside of the class to complete coursework and for research and preparation of the presentation.  The coursework meets the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) Standard for Fire Service Instructor Professional Qualifications.

“I appreciate that our firefighters are willing to sacrifice the time needed to further their skills to improve fire protection and prevention in our community,” said Deputy Chief Riggs.  “The Department is committed to assuring that our members have access to state-of-the-art training opportunities.”

JONESVILLE IS “THE REAL DEAL”
After sifting through nearly 80 entries, the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) selected a new tagline that calls on Jonesville’s heritage as the home of the Deal Buggy Company and the Deal Automobile.  Two different entrants suggested Jonesville be known as “The Real Deal.”  The Jonesville City Council unanimously approved the DDA’s recommendation for the new tagline at their meeting on March 20th.

“We had many great entries and it made for a difficult decision,” said DDA Chair Don Toffolo. “We thought that the winning entry was clever and pithy.  We liked that it incorporates a piece of Jonesville’s history.”

The creative slogan was submitted separately by two entrants, Paul Hosmer and Jeff Rowe.   Each was the recipient of a prize of $50 in Jonesville Bucks.  The City will be featuring marketing materials using the new tagline soon.
