SAFER Firefighters (Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response) 

SAFER firefighters Ian Van Weerden Poelman, Ben Shank and Aaron Hunt were hired in March of 2016 for a two-year period. All costs for the SAFER program were paid by FEMA. After the two year period, local officials voted to terminate them from employment due to lack of continued local funds.
