Where do you live? Shelton

Where do you volunteer? Echo Hose Hook & Ladder Co.1 — Shelton Fire Headquarters

Why have you chosen to volunteer, and why did you choose this organization to volunteer your time? The biggest reason why I chose to volunteer was because of Sept. 11th. The actions of firefighters on that tragic day inspired me to want to make a difference in my own community through the fire department. I chose the Echo Hose Hook & Ladder Co.1 because it is the busiest fire company in Shelton. If anything major were to happen in the city, chances are the Echo Hose will be there to play a key role.
