West City Fire Department gets first responders

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN CO. -- The West City Fire Department now has the ability to respond better to emergencies.

The department now runs first responders in its fire district.

Firefighters now have special certification and training for a variety of emergency situations.

Deputy Chief Tim McGuire says it will give citizens the best service possible.

"When someone calls 911, they expect a quick and professional response. That's what we try to strive here at West City. We try to strive for professionalism and being there at the time people need us," said McGuire.

McGuire says the fire department got three emergency calls just hours after the village board approved the upgrade in service.
