MEDINA – The Medina Village Board has hired four full-time firefighters to bring the Fire Department back to full strength with 21 full-time staff.

Village officials interviewed candidates last week and hired the following

  • Scott Buffin, paramedic
  • Justin Desabrais, EMT
  • James Cullin, EMT
  • Paul Urquhart, EMT

The firefighters respond to about 3,000 calls a year and run an ambulance service for western Orleans County.

A federal grant will pay part of the salaries for the four new members of the Medina FD, said Mike Sidari, the village mayor.
