Pleasant Township Medical Director Dr. Robert Lowe has retired.
Fire Chief Brian Taylor made a presentation honoring the retiring director at a recent Pleasant Township board meeting.
In his 13-year-long career as medical director for the Pleasant Township Fire Department, Lowe has been responsible for training and directing countless paramedics under his command. He began serving as medical director for the department in 2006 and decided to retire from service as of Nov. 18.
“In the short time I’ve been here, just over three and a half years, Dr. Lowe in my opinion is the finest medical director I’ve ever been involved with,” said Taylor.
A resolution was adopted by the trustees to hereby congratulate Lowe and wish him well in all future endeavors.
In other news, the trustees have decided to hold a town hall meeting regarding the Columbus State Community College burn lab which could be placed on the property of the Pleasant Township Fire Department.
The trustees said that it is important for them to get the opinions of the neighbors and residents in the area who this potential burn lab may affect prior to deciding if they are going to go ahead with the project. Final details of the date and time of the meeting have not been decided, but they will hand out flyers and post the date and time on the website once it has been finalized.
The board will attempt to have Jack McCoy from Columbus State attend the meeting to answer any resident’s questions and concerns regarding this project.
