Recruitment event planned for volunteer firefighters in Henderson Co.

HENDERSON CO., KY (WFIE) - If you're interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter, Henderson has an event for you.

On Saturday, representatives from all county fire stations will be at the fairgrounds to provide information to those interested in being a volunteer firefighter. 

Volunteer fire chiefs tell 14NEWS every department in the county is in need of a few volunteers.

Attendees can watch a real demonstration called a flashover trailer, where a trailer home is set on fire and firefighters put it out.

"Giving back to your community is your reward," says Spottsville Fire Chief Jim McGan.  "I do this every day because if I can save one person or make a difference in their life for a few seconds, I'm rewarded. I don't have to hear thanks, I don't have to get a paycheck to get that." 

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Henderson County Fairgrounds.
