Walkers Residents Held Meeting at Local VFD

Posted: Updated:

Residents in Walkers gathered Thursday to discuss the need for more volunteer firefighters.

This was a planned meeting by residents to discuss why the membership is low at the fire department.

Walkers Fire Chief said there's a lot of training needed to be a volunteer firefighter.

Residents said you can't have a limited amount of firefighters.

"The problem is that our membership is down so low that they don't have enough to run fire calls or emergency calls of any kind, a lot of times only one or two go out or three or four. You can't fight a structure fire with one or two, three or four guys," said Walkers resident Bill Cayton.

If you would like to volunteer, you can stop by the Walkers Fire Department to pick up an application.
