Utica Fire Protection welcomes four new firefighters

Posted by wlpo on April 3, 2012

It takes a special kind of person to suit up and enter a home as heavy black smoke pours from the eves.  And responding to a serious car accident is not for the faint of heart.

The next time the fire trucks going rolling out of the Utica Community Fire Protection District station four new firefighters could be onboard.  Ben Ficek, Ryan Foster, Koty Gapinski, and Collin McCabe have been added to the roster after completing a cadet training program while they were under the age of 18.

The cadet program is open to teens ages 15-18 living in the Utica district.  It prepares them for fire and EMS.
