Sworn in as firefighters were Patrick Holcomb and Zackary Whinery. Craig Tershel was promoted to captain.

Chief John O’Neill said the two new hires are to replace firefighters who retired, and Tershel is also replacing a captain who retired.

Another black eye for the residents & taxpayers of Youngstown . More money wasted on surplus wages and benefits & superfluous equipment instead of fixing the City's decaying infrastructure .

Why replace staff when it has been agreed to reduce their numbers over 5 years ? The Dept itself admits it doesn't need an officer for every firefighter . Another promotion to captain ? - Youngstown already has enough captains for the whole Mahoning County

by the way tool, Youngstown gets more fires that the entire county combined, if you must mention the entire county. Look at the stats if you don't believe, or get someone who is educated to look for you! Do you even live in the city, or are you like the other burb brats throwing stones at moving vehicles then running? LOL
