Beloit Fire Department prepares to hire new recruits

Beloit Fire Chief Brad Liggett appears pleased with the eight probationary firefighters and assistant chief he’s hiring.  Liggett is replenishing the ranks following the end-of-the-year retirements of nine long time staff members.  He adds, in his 29-years of service, he’s never seen so much experience retire at the same time.  The Police and Fire Commission is expected to approve the recommendations during its meeting Monday afternoon.
