Potential volunteer firefighters check out the big machines

Potential Fire Rescue Service Volunteers listen as Volunteer Blair Muldoon guides them through service's inventory of machinery at the main Fire Hall last Wednesday. They were among a dozen young men and women interested in contributing to the community as volunteer firefighters. Over the next couple of months potential recruits will be introduced to — and interviewed by — other volunteers as well as Chief Rob Girard. They'll also be tested for physical strength and stamina before learning if they made the grade. David F. Rooney photo
