Last night and into this morning, Mifflin Township Firefighters along with personnel from other Central Ohio departments responded as part of Central Ohio Strike Team USAR Region 4 Urban Search and Rescue to assist Region 6 USAR and the City of Cincinnati in the search for a victim following a partial building collapse at a construction site in downtown Cincinnati. COST personnel operated through the night, working on stabilization and search and rescue efforts before being relieved this morning around 06:00. This marks the third COST activation this year, and Mifflin Township firefighters have responded in each instance. Mifflin Township personnel who are part of COST participate in quarterly training to maintain proficiency in urban search and rescue operations.

In addition to the work this holiday season with GRIN (Gahanna Residents in Need) and Firefighters 4 Kids - Columbus Ohio, Local 2818 also undertook an effort to support the residents affected by the fire on Shephard Street in October . Among the occupants affected was Brianna Repass, a local student in Gahanna-Jefferson Schools. Among the articles lost by her family in the fire was a laptop needed for school work. Through the financial support of the Local 2818 Membership, and with kind thanks to the Apple Easton Town Center, the Local was able to provide a laptop to Brianna. We also wish to recognize DICK'S Sporting Goods location for their kind donation to the Repass family as well.
