With housing and rental costs at an all-time high, volunteers are fighting to stay in our community
The Ben Lomond Volunteer Fire Department is the epitome of “it takes all kinds.” From construction workers and paramedics, to accountants and retirees, these are the trained volunteers who respond when you have an emergency.
And who better to protect our community than those who know it, love it, and live among its residents?
Though most of our on-call volunteers are scattered throughout the community, the fire station offers limited housing that some of the firefighters, like Hunter Anderson, are grateful for.
“I’m one of four firefighters that live at the station full time,” he said. “We have living quarters upstairs with four bedrooms, a bathroom, a rec room, and a gym.”
