Bethel-Tate Fire Department Update

5/8/17

So far the Bethel-Tate Fire Department has had a busy year. As of early May:

  • 178 fire details
  • 547 EMS details.
  • 21 dispatches for structure fires or vehicle fires with a total fire loss of about $36,000 and a total property and contents saved amount of about $498,000.
  • Our most recent fire in our district was a detached garage that caught fire in the latter part of April, whereas we assisted Monroe Township with a barn fire in early May.

In EMS news, we received a grant from the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation for a motorized cot and load system.  This cot and load system will reduce our risk of lifting-related injuries we can incur on EMS details. Stay tuned as we will try and get a video of the cot in action and post it here.

Hello, I am Gary Reed and I have been a Trustee since 2014.  I am a Bethel native, born in 1959 and raised here. I have worked hard my entire life to support this community, beginning with working with my father in 1976 at the Southside Services Station, which I purchased in 1990 and which has been in continuous operation ever since, expanding in the early 2000’s to include tool rental and an excavation company.  It is due to the good people and loyal customers of Tate Township and the surrounding communities that my business has been able to flourish.  It is one of my greatest wishes to give back to my community by supporting local businesses, school, and community activities. Through the years I have sponsored the wrestling and soccer teams, the high school score board, and more.

My daughter Hailey was born, raised, and educated in this community as well. Prior to her birth I purchased farmland in this community which I currently farm myself and which I believe gives me insight into the needs of other local farmers. In 2006, I married my wife Kay.

As a Trustee, I feel my 40 years of mechanical, excavating, and farming experience combined with the connections obtained over the years being an active member of this community enable me to understand how best to use my abilities and local resources to achieve what this community needs and wants.I take this position very seriously and want to see this community continue to grow and succeed.

Born in Bethel, Ohio, graduated from Bethel-Tate High School in 1965, married to Terri 46 years, two children, two grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Owner of a distributorship for 38 years for Little Debbie Snack Cakes,and a Veteran Services Advocate since 1999.

A life member of Bethel American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars, AMVETS, Purple Heart, The Vietnam Veterans of America and the Ohio Military Hall of Fame for Valor.

A life Member of Clermont County Historical Association, and the Bethel Historical Association, a twenty-five year member of the Bethel Lions Club, a member of the Bethel Baptist Church.

Currently Executive Director of Clermont County Veterans Service Commission, Batavia Ohio, and Chairman of Tate Township Trustees.

Howard S. Daugherty Executive Director Clermont County Veterans Service Commission                    P: 513-732-7377 F: 513-732-7639

I, James G. Burns, am a life long resident of Tate Township. I graduated from Bethel-Tate High School. I married my high school sweetheart, Corinne, in 1975. To this union, two children were born.  My daughter Tiffany, married David Riddle.  They have two children, Nathan and Mackenzie.  They also live in Tate Township. My son, James married Tiffany Balk and they reside in Winchester, Kentucky.

I started working at the family business in October 1968.  I took over the business in 1990 and I am there still today.

I am a member and past Master of Bethel Lodge 61. I am a past member of the Bethel Lions Club and served as President for two years. I served as Assistant Scout Master for Boy Scout Troop 196. I am a member of the Sons of American Legion, Bethel Post 406. I sponsored the SADD chapter at Bethel-Tate High School and assisted in numerous local baseball and softball teams. I have supplied the touchdown cannon for Bethel-Tate High School football games for ten plus years.

I was elected as Tate Township Trustee in 1994 to serve a two year unexpired term.  I was then defeated and then re-elected. I have held that position ever since.  During the years I have observed Tate Township changing. I have done my best to keep ahead of the changes to better serve the residents of the township.  I am a strong supported of our Fire Department, which is second to none. I am extremely proud of our Road and Cemetery Departments. Our Zoning Department does its best to keep up with our zoning regulations.

Remember this is your Township to enjoy and protect.  I will continue to do my best to serve our community. Thank you.      Sincerely,   James G. Burns
