Whitefield Fire & Rescue to host Recruitment Day and Open House

WHITEFIELD - There are so many ways to make a difference in your community. And joining Whitefield Fire & Rescue is one of those opportunities where you can make a positive impact. On Saturday, September 16, representatives of Whitefield Fire & Rescue will be looking to recruit new members at the Sheepscot General located at 98 Townhouse Rd. from 12:30-3 p.m. Reports have shown Maine’s volunteer fire departments increasingly are having a hard time finding enough people to fill their ranks, putting them in danger of being unable to respond quickly to calls.
