A Sincere Shout-Out To Our Groton Fire Department

I’d like to offer a sincere shoutout of congratulations to our Groton Fire Department for the success they have realized in forming the new training class of on-call recruits. Chief Steele and Lt. Shute consistently pursued a broad program of recruitment, to find willing men and women motivated to make this huge commitment to training, duty, and community including The Explorer program and the ever optimistic but often disappointing strategy of signage. Seldom seen is this level of response.
     As a member of last year’s Fire Department Task Force, we learned that recruitment/ retention of voluntary responders is a worsening Nationwide problem; it’s increasingly difficult  to find willing men and women motivated to make this huge commitment to training, duty, and community
     Good job to all members of the FD team that made this recruitment round a great one! Your persistence is praise worthy!
 
Sincerely,
John Kane
Oxbow Lane, Groton
