Fire district in need of volunteers

Posted:

Findlay – A call for help the Findlay Fire Protection District is in desperate need of volunteers.

 

The Fire and Ambulance Chief told WAND they will have to stop the ambulance service within a year if help doesn't come soon. Chief Ed Voltenburg says they are down to just five volunteers, which is not enough.

 

If more people don't volunteer they will have to shut down the ambulance service and contact an outside agency, such as another fire district. However, that will slow down the response time.

 

If you would like to volunteer you must live in the district or within an eight mile radius of Findlay. Call Chief Ed Voltenburg at 259-9781.
