Eric McDonnel – Spotsylvania Volunteer Fire Department

We are there at someone’s darkest moment, to help the them through the toughest of situations. The feeling you get from helping someone in need is one of the best feelings you will ever have.

I have always been interested in the fire department. During a visit to the fire station with my cub scout den, I talked to the fire fighters about joining the department and filled out the paperwork that night. I enjoy being with a group of people who come from different backgrounds that come together to for a common cause.
