On Wednesday, April 8, 2020, The Thornwood Fire District held the installation of Chiefs during their regular monthly district meeting. The Fire District said goodbye and Thank you to now Ex-Chief Frank J. Kolodzinski III for his years of service as Chief. Ex-Chief Kolodzinski III has served the community as chief for the past two years and as an Assistant Chief role for the five years prior to becoming Chief.
With the exiting of a Chief, we welcome in Chief James Gedris and his Assistant's, First Assistant Chief Ryan Rodgers and Second Assistant Chief Thomas Olsen. The Thornwood Fire District was forced to reschedule the official swearing-in ceremony for all the new Chief's and Line Officers due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic. When rescheduled, their families will be able to participate by pinning on their new badges after taking the oath of office. We congratulate the new Chiefs and Line Officers on their new roles and wish them luck in their years of service leading the Thornwood Fire Company.
The full list of the Line Officer's and Company Officer's are listed below.
