Membership Recruitment - Indian River High School, Dagsboro, DE
Thursday, January 4, 2007
On January 4, 2007 the members of the Frankford Volunteer Fire Company participated in a multi-department recruitment presentation at the Indian River High School in Dagsboro, DE. Representation from the Dagsboro VFC, Millville VFC, Roxana VFC, Selbyville VFC, Sussex County Paramedics, and Christiana Cares Lifenet Helicopter were all present to embark on this first annual event. Turnout was much higher with approximately 75 potential junior fire personnel attending the presentation. In addition to a thirty minute presentation the students were broken down into groups by fire district they live in for a question and answer station. Once that was complete they were all taken out and given an overview of fire and EMS apparatus and the jobs emergency services provide. Paramedic Supervisor Rob Mauch also gave a brief orientation on the Sussex County Paramedic student program. We feel that this was a tremendous success, and we plan to follow this up with a one on one question and answer session with parents and potential junior fire applicants.
