WICKSBURG: These three young men joined Wicksburg Fire - Rescue while in High School. While in High School they worked around the volunteer fire station helping maintain the equipment.
The three young men were never allowed into the "hot zone" of the fires. But while working at Wicksburg Fire - Rescue they attended training to become a fireman.
When May of this year arrived and they graduated from school the trio moved from "Cadet" Fireman to a full Wicksburg Volunteer Fireman.
Today the trio were the first on the scene of the structure fire on Highway 84 West. They busted their butts with every fireman on the scene. You could not tell the difference in them and the paid fireman or ones who had been on the scene for years.
The three young men are Hunter Trawick, Broc Collins and Kevin Stewart.
I wish to Thank these three young men for their willingness to join the Cadet Program of Wicksburg Fire - Rescue while in school. Their willingness to spend the time to learn the fundamentals of firefighting.
But even more for their willingness to serve their community for free in order to save lives and property.
