3 Sussex County Fire Companies to Host Recruitment Events

Posted: Updated:

SUSSEX CO., Del - Three Sussex County fire companies are in need of more members.

Six fire stations in Lewes, Milton, and Rehoboth Beach will host an open house Saturday. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., firefighters will give demonstrations, have their equipment on display, and answer questions from anyone interested in joining them.

There have been three fire deaths in the county this year. Officials say more firefighters could prevent future tragedies in the growing Cape Henlopen area.

"If you look at our districts, all three of them combined, the building that's going on in there is overwhelming," Warren Jones of the Rehoboth Beach Vol. Fire Company said. "We need to prepare for that. We need to take care of what we have right now -- plus, prepare for what's coming down the road."

Training for those who sign up on Saturday will begin almost immediately. Training includes months of mentoring and classes at the Delaware State Fire School.
