The Huntington Fire Department welcomed Cole Lahr as its newest member of its public safety team.
Lahr, a patrolman for 11 years with the Huntington Police Department, was sworn into duty as a firefighter and first responder during a ceremony Wednesday, July 6, afternoon at the Huntington City Building.
Lahr will attend the Fire Academy Class this coming spring.
During his time with HPD, Lahr was both a field training officer and member of the methamphetamine suppression team.
“We look forward to bringing Cole on board, and he will be a big asset with his public safety experience,” Fire Chief Tony Johnson said.
