Sandy fire needs more volunteers

Sandy Fire and Rescue is looking for a number of volunteer firefighter recruits. Applications are available at this time each year.

To be eligible, a person must be at least 18 years of age, a high school graduate (or have earned a GED), and share the fire department’s values of professionalism, responsibility, integrity, dedication and education.

Volunteers will experience a challenge, and they must be prepared to do exceptional work.

There is no other reward as great as saving lives, says Capt. Jason McKinnon.

Applications can be downloaded from sandyfire.org or picked up from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Sandy Fire District Main Station, 17460 Bruns Ave.

Completed applications are due no later than 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2.

For more information, call Capt. McKinnon at 503-668-8093.
