Thomas "Tom" Carlson, a lifelong resident of Mayville, was welcomed as a new member of the Westfield Memorial Hospital Foundation at its March meeting.

Ironically, Carlson is very familiar with the hospital, having been a member of the Mayville Fire Department for the last 26 years. In this capacity, he held an Advanced EMT/Paramedic certification for more than 20 years. Additionally, he says, "I also worked for ALSTAR Ambulance Service as a medic from 1994 to 2004."

Having been employed by Chautauqua County since 1980, Carlson currently holds the position of director for the North Chautauqua Lake Sewer District and the Portland-Pomfret Sewer District. He also holds the Deputy Supervisor position for the town of Chautauqua.

Carlson is involved in many organizations, including Sons of the American Legion, VFW Men's Auxiliary, Westfield Moose #118, Mayville Conservation Club, Northern Chautauqua Conservation Club, Vikings Lodge #65 and War Vets Recreation Club.
