What If No One Answered the Call?
by Sublette County Unified Fire
October 26, 2015
(Pinedale, WY) A storm breaks out unexpectedly in Sublette County. Cars crash in the blinding rain. Lightning causes a home to catch fire. People of all ages call for help. What would happen if no one answered the call? Who would respond to protect the lives and property of the community? Who would be there to help?
Every day, in every community, emergency responders answer the call of our families, friends and neighbors who are in need of assistance. From car accidents to heart attacks, from house fires to technical rescues, emergency responders are there to protect lives and property.
Emergency responders are a special type of people, with many different reasons for answering the call of duty. Some like the challenges and the adrenaline rush, while others like to sharpen their emergency skills and techniques. Every one of them answers the call so that they can help someone in need.
Today’s emergency responders do far more than put out fires or bandage wounds. Emergency responders are the first line of defense in natural and man-made disasters. They respond to vehicle accidents, hazardous materials incidents, specialized rescue situations and a vast array of emergency medical complaints.
In response to the growing need for new volunteer firefighters, Sublette County Unified Fire has initiated a recruitment campaign for interested people to learn how to "answer the call" and serve their community.
For more information about becoming a volunteer firefighter, please contact Shad Cooper, Sublette County Unified Fire Chief, at 307-367-4550 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Becoming a volunteer emergency responder can be the most rewarding experience of your life, and allows you to reach out to someone in need. Together with Sublette County Unified Fire, you can ensure that there is always someone to "answer the call."
