Forty years of service to their community . . .Three Eagle Bend firefighters hang up their hoses
by Karin L. Nauber
Volunteer firefighters are worth their weight in gold. They perform some of the most vital tasks that our communities enjoy. They are on the front line at fires. They are typically one of the first to respond to an accident.
Their sense of voluntaryism often carries over to other parts of the communities in which they live.
This year, three dedicated volunteer firefighters on the Eagle Bend Volunteer Fire Department retired from the department. Below they share some of their memories and answered the following questions:
1. What made you decide to join the fire department?
2. What are some of the biggest changes that you have seen in the department over the years?
3. Why is serving on the fire department important for the community?
4. What is your strongest memory of being a firefighter?
5. What will you miss the most now being retired from the department?
6. What advice would you give new members joining the department?
