TUCKERMAN, AR (KAIT)- The Tuckerman Fire Department and EMS is seeking recruits from the community.
The fire department is short-staffed and looking to fill 5 new positions. Fire Chief Wrotie Koller said they will front the bill for EMT school and firefighter training.
"There is a desperate need for us, we run a volunteer fire department and volunteer ambulance service," Koller said. "To run a full-time ambulance service you have to have coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and right now we're low on our EMTs and we have to have a certified EMT to run it."
