Ohio Fire Corp is helping resource-constrained fire and EMS departments through the use of volunteers for non-emergency activities.
 

The organization provided a free day of training at its state conference Saturday at the Mohican State Lodge.

The conference provided tools and resources to volunteer, combination and career fire and EMS departments to help them implement a volunteer program and promote it their community. 

"We want to push the idea of volunteer recruitment and to really drive the message of why its important to support your service. With the limited man power a lot of our fire departments have its important the resources are out there to support for them," Ohio Fire Corps advocate Candice McDonald said.

Awards were also presented to Fire Corps programs that have excelled in their respective areas.
