At the July 16 Springfield Township Committee meeting, officials approved making conditional job offers to three firefighters.
Following the approval, conditional offers of employment will be made to Kevin Ruck, Peter Peros and Christopher Tutela.
The conditional offers are designed to give the prospective new employees time to give adaquete notice from their current jobs before starting with Springfield.
The new hires would bring the Fire department’s headcount up to 22, including Chief James Sanford and Deputy Chief Carlo Palumbo. Sanford said the staffing level was at its highest since 2006, when the Department had 25 firefighters.
The Committee also approved the appointment of John Krueger as a volunteer member of the department.
