GRAVENHURST — There’s no volunteering when the alarm goes.
Local firefighters go when called.
Now, there are nine new “volunteer firefighters” to answer 911 when cars crash and fires erupt.
The Gravenhurst Fire Department welcomed them after weeks of summer training.
Four other officers were promoted, and 11 firefighters received long service awards, including 20 years for proud trainer Tracy Jocque.
A large crowd of family, friends and fomer firefighters offered their support at the Terry Fox Auditorium at the Centennial Centre.
