Flossmoor pays tribute to John Ratko’s 40 years of fire service

During his 40 years as a volunteer firefighter and paramedic in Flossmoor, Ratko repeatedly found himself in situations where he literally saved someone’s life. And he kept tabs on people who’d been on the receiving end of his lifesaving efforts. Flossmoor Village Board members paid tribute to Ratko at their Nov. 7 meeting for his four decades of service to the village.
