Morehead Hired First Fire Department

Since it was founded in 1926, the nearly 50 firefighters that make up the Morehead Fire Department have been volunteers. On Wednesday three clocked in for the first time as paid employees. The firefighters will each work Wednesday through Sunday and work during the day. On their first day they already responded to two minor fires. Fire Chief says Jeff Anderson says while his dream is for one day the department to have a full time staff, he’s excited for his department to connect to the community in a new way.
