Dear Editor:

Kudos to Union Township Fire Chief Stan Deimling. He is an outstanding public servant who is under recognized for his dedication to Union Township. Under his leadership, the UT Fire Department earned accreditation by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International and also maintains an excellent rating by the Insurance Services Offices.

On a personal note, Chief Deimling made arrangements to care for my infant daughter during a medical emergency until I arrived home. All worked out well. It was comforting to know that he was on the scene.

Additionally, I’ve also found Chief Deimling to be most professional and personable. Although he was busy working with parents and children at the recent National Night Out event, Chief Deimling took the time to explain to me the various options for organizing fire districts. He outlined the advantages, disadvantages, financial, and political impact of potential changes.

Chief Deimling is clearly one of Union Township’s best assets. His wealth of knowledge, high energy level, professionalism, and public persona are second to none. We are very fortunate to have him.
