Zoe Moyer is one of the newest members of the Slatington Volunteer Fire Department. She, along with Krystall Borman, make up two of the station's 9 female members. "Seeing more women come in is fantastic because you don't see that everywhere, so you are able to bond with them a little more and share your expertise and how you do things a little differently and help them succeed," said Krystall Borman, Firefighter/Safety Officer with the Slatington Volunteer Fire Department. Borman joined her first fire department when she was 17 after meeting her future husband. "He would leave and go on calls and things like that, and I kind of felt left out, so I wanted to go with him, so I joined the fire department with him and have fallen in love with the department ever since," said Krystall.
