JOINT PRESS STATEMENT

 

July 16, 2021


The Walworth Fire District No.1 and Walworth Fire Department are saddened by the recent arrest of former Chief Karel Ambroz.

Both the District and the Fire Department are committed to being a safe and inclusive workplace and  service provider to the

community. We empathize with those that are involved in the incident and the impact of his actions on the community.


Both the District and Fire Department emphatically denounce his alleged actions and conclude that this behavior is not in 

compliance with the values of either organization. As a result, the Board of Commissioners has accepted Mr. Ambroz’ s resignation 

as Chief and placed him on non-punitive administrative leave from the Walworth Fire Department. These actions are taken 

in compliance with both District and Fire Department Policy and By-Laws, respectively.

 

As per both District policy and Department By-laws, this status prohibits any active participation in Fire Department 

activities: training, response, or social functions. Mr. Ambroz will remain on administrative leave pending conclusion of the legal 

proceedings at which time the Walworth Fire District #1, acting as Lead Agency, will convene a Disciplinary Hearing to review 

his legal status and determine his final membership status. Both the District and the Fire Department are obligated to follow 

existing policies and procedures and allow due process for any member.

 

There will be no further comments until the conclusion of the ongoing legal proceedings,

SafeBee© Summer Safety Tips:

  • Put your AC to the test and have it serviced,
  • Show ceiling fans some love; clean, check and reverse fan rotation,
  • Get the lint out; clean your dryer lint traps,
  • Sweep out your chimney and have it checked,
  • Look up on the roof; check shingles and flashing, repair if needed,
  • Send creeping critters packing; check house for bird nests, mice and other critters,
  • Eliminate lead; temperature changes can lead to cracked and chipped paint. If your home was built before 1978you may have lead paint on the interior, have it sampled if you do not know the history. This is also the perfect time to check/repair window caulking.
NOTICE


Membership Applications Now Being Accepted

As everyone slowly returns to normal working situations, our local law enforcement professionals are beginning to perform our required background checks. 

If you are interested in becoming a member but were holding off on submitting an application please feel free to submit at anytime. 

If you submitted an application previously, you should be hearing from us soon.
The Second Annual Walworth FD Gun/Cash Raffle is now complete! If you won, congratulations; if not you can always try again next year!
     

The Fire Departments of Wayne Central are looking for some “helpers”... Hydrant Helpers

 

New Construction techniques and materials along with the increased use of petrochemicals for carpeting and furniture make home fires grow much faster than they used to.  Getting water to a fire in a timely manner is now more important than ever!  Every minute counts in our efforts to save life and property. 

 

Keeping a Fire Hydrant clear not only shows that you Care about your Community… it also helps your Fire Department.

 

Students at Wayne Central are encouraged to work with an adult (to keep everyone SAFE) to clear a hydrant for the winter season.   Fill out an entry form available at your School’s Main office and drop it off in the fire boot.  You can also get the form at www.lincolnfd.org.  Pictures and updates are welcome at any of the Facebook pages for Lincoln, Ontario, Union Hill, Walworth and West Walworth or you can send them to ffbob@rochester.rr.com.

 

Patches and Certificates will be presented to our Hydrant Helpers to recognize their Community Service at the end of the season.     

 

The Walworth Fire Department is a member of FDWC and proud to support its programs at Wayne Central.
