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.
