Granger fire marshal retires
“This has not been an easy decision, because after all I really liked and enjoyed the work that I provided to the residents of Granger Township, schools, churches and commercial businesses helping to promote a safer community for everyone,” he stated in his letter.
His retirement was effective that day.
Township officials said during his tenure McCown established a fire prevention bureau that worked closely with the community to assure the safety of everyone and gained their respect and trust. He also established a friendly and professional working relationship with the Medina County Building Department. In total, trustees said McCown’s career in the division of emergency medical services spanned 42 years, with 30 years in the fire department.
