Funding granted for live-in firefighters

SEYMOUR, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Seymour Volunteer Fire Department is holding a meeting tonight for people interested in becoming a live-in firefighter.

The SVFD recently received a federal grant giving them enough money to pay for nine live-ins and a Grant Coordinator.

The grant also provides tuition assistance, firefighting gear, computers at each station, and physicals.

Folks interested in the opportunity must be willing to be enrolled in a two-year or four-year college and commit to a minimum of 36 hours of standby time a week.

The meeting is Monday, October 29th at 6:00 p.m. in Station One at 101 Ford Hill Lane in Seymour.

For more information about the meeting please call the station at 865.573.7475 or email live.in@seymourvfd.com.
