The Bangor Burns and West Salem Volunteer Fire Departments are seeking volunteers to fill vacancies and day shifts this month with both departments finding it difficult to get candidates to sign up. Bangor Firefigher TC Allen said the department is seeking more than a dozen men and women to join their roster. The department protects nearly 100 square miles and fields 80-90 calls a year. Allen, who is in charge of recruitment for the department, said it has been difficult to find people willing to volunteer. He said a lot of volunteers work in La Crosse making it challenging for them to get back to the department in an emergency.
