The department could use some more volunteers—men and women. No one is required to enter a burning building or even to spray water. There is plenty of lighter work to do.
Contact anyone with the fire department: Chief Mike Sonnen and firefighters David Rose, Del Knight, Dennis Svenpladsen, Rick Erwin, Tara Johnson, Doug Backman, Bill Vaughn, Sally Svenpladsen, Julie Wade, Linda Kirk, and Richard Kirk.
Or stop by the fire hall on Goldbrick Road on any Wednesday evening at 6:30 to talk to a volunteer. On the first Wednesday of the month, the board holds its meetings. On the following Wednesdays, volunteers train to fight fires.
