LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS
The Highwood Rural Volunteer Fire Department is sponsoring a 40 hour
EMR (Emergency Medical Response) class in an effort to have more
trained people in the area that can respond to emergency medical calls.
The class will be held at the Ambulance Barn in Fort Benton. The class
takes three months to complete and will start January 9. Class time
consists of one Tuesday evening each week and one Saturday a month. The
fire department will arrange for childcare during class time if there
is a need. We need to know how many people are interested and plan to
take the class. There may be a possibility to work these training hours
into serving on the volunteer fire department, where after 20 years of
volunteer service you would be eligible for retirement benefits.
Please speak with Richard Hartman for complete details regarding
volunteering. This opportunity is open to both men and women. Please
respond by December 26 by calling Richard Hartman at 733-2053.
