Clyman-Reeseville-Lowell Fire Department Looking For Fighters

(Clyman) The Clyman-Reeseville-Lowell Fire Department are looking for firefighters. The three agencies, which were entirely volunteer based, recently merged into one entity after struggling for years to find willing and able bodies.

According to state statute, Wisconsin fire departments must maintain a roster of 30 volunteers or be at risk of getting shutdown. Each station alone struggled to hit that number, but after the merger they now have over 50 members combined.

The stations Fire Chief Eric Howlett says even though they are in a better position staffing wise then they were weeks ago, they are always looking for people to join. Howlett says they are going to local schools to offer mentorship programs as a way to get the younger generation involved. He says for anyone interested there are multiple ways to reach out.

Howlett says people can call their training officer and Deputy Chief Chris Abell at 920-285-0285 or email him at [email protected]. Interested individuals can also visit https://townofclyman.org/fire-and-rescue/, https://www.clrfirerescue.org/, and https://townoflowell.com/departments/town-group-fire-district/ for applications or additional contact details.
