  • Fire Departments join together for volunteer recruitment

     

    The county’s six fire departments are stepping out of their individual territories to hold a first-ever countywide volunteer recruiting class.

    The class, which will take place in early March, is designed to increase volunteer numbers, said Captain Matt Nelson of the South Oldham Fire Department.

    Before this year, only one or two departments would partner for the classes.

    “It’s better if we work together,” Nelson said. “It’s easier to put all the students in one class.”
