Lincoln Parish Fire Department has eight new volunteer firefighters this fall. These people took time out of their busy schedules to attend the firefighter school. They fought staged fires, wore oxygen masks and did other extensive training so that they would be ready for anything.
Danny Cross, district chief for LPFD, said this year’s firefighter school was one of the best they ever had, and he looked forward to working with these firefighters.
“Our new volunteers are very impressive,” Cross said. “They have been very energetic — we should be able to keep all of them.”
