Volunteers train to become firefighters
RACINE, Ohio – The Racine Volunteer Fire Department recently hosted a thirty six hour basic fire class.
The class was instructed by Brian Dunn and Darrell Wright from Welston Fire Department training academy. There were a total of 14 volunteers that participated in the training from three different departments in the county. The three departments represented with students were Racine, Syracuse, and Chester.
The volunteers were instructed in the basics of volunteer firefighting.
