Volunteer firefighters are critical to community

Editorials

The Brookings-Harbor area is known for its legion of volunteers and those who go beyond the call of duty – and that was proven last weekend when 29 volunteer firefighters graduated from a 6-week, 46-hour first-responder course (See story on Page 1A).

That means the next time someone in our community is in a desperate medical emergency and the ambulance hasn’t arrived yet, one of these qualified firefighters can do more than the basic CPR and first aid.

Sounds great to us!

We salute these unpaid volunteers who spent time out of their busy lives to get the extra training. And we salute Cal-Ore Life Flight for getting the grant and donating the equipment and instructor that made it possible.


Perry’s efforts are just Devine
