Solon Fire Application

This application is your request to be placed on a candidates list to be considered for membership on the Solon Fire Department. The Solon Fire Department maintains a normal membership of 30 members. New members are only placed on the roster in the vent of a current member leaving the roster. This application is kept by the Solon Fire Department in a file in the chronological order in which it is received, reviewed and dated by the Fire Chief. When the time comes to fill a vacancy in the roster an election is held at the regular business meeting in January. A candidate is voted into probationary status by a chronologically ranked list untill there is a successful vote and the roster is filled.
