Local Volunteer Firefighters Fill Important Roles

Saturday wrapped up Fire Prevention Week. All last week on KMCH, you heard from local firefighters who gave tips on fire safety… but how much do you know about the firefighters themselves?

Did you know all firefighters in Delaware County are volunteers? Dan Rosauer with the Delaware Fire Department says they go through hours of training to help their communities.

And most local departments could use more volunteer firefighters. Rosauer says having a full roster is important because since everyone is a volunteer they’re not available at all times.

If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter, contact your local fire department.
