Today was a nice cruise over the divide into Wamsutter. They have a very dedicated group here. All work and no play. They really embody what service means here. Service first, self second, what a great example to live by. This place has a real down home feel. It was like a family reunion at dinner. It felt like the whole town showed up for the BBQ. It was really wonderful to see. The great thing out here is that you can’t rest on your laurels. You don’t just get to say, “Someone else will get it.” There is no one else. You have to participate in life out here or there is no life. With long response times, minimum staffing, and long impassable roads to the hospitals, these volunteers face many challenges. They do their best to help others. They do what they can. And they do it for free. Wamsutter, you are the fire service.
