Burlington has several new volunteer firefighters.
Nine graduates from the City’s firefighter training program — Lauren Bray, Cody Hill, Jackson Keaney, Ashley Kelly, Jake Overholt, Mark Reed, Daniel Rothmain, James Steenbruggen and Emma Trabuc — will now be volunteering from the Kilbride station.
“We’re thrilled to welcome these new volunteers to the fire fighting family,” said Burlington Fire Chief Karen Roche.
“The 16-week training was quite intensive and they all did extremely well managing their workload and balancing COVID protocols and family life. I look forward to working with them.”
Volunteer firefighters serve the community by responding to a wide variety of situations, ranging from emergencies that immediately threaten life or property to large-scale community emergencies.
They may perform first response or support duties, including but not limited to: activities at emergency incidents large or small; emergency pre-hospital medical aid, and hazardous material incident support activities.
