For the first time since the 2017 merger between the Rothschild and Schofield fire departments, the combined Riverside Fire District is at full staff.
"We've been trying to find the right candidates for our job," Riverside Fire District Lt. Dylan Green said. "Obviously, it's not a job that (just) anybody can do, so it's more or less finding someone that's willing to be part of the team, that's willing to help people, that's willing to do the right thing when nobody is watching."
Riverside Fire District brought on 10 people at once about two weeks ago, and after going through the full process, had them confirmed as employees last week.
"Our district board set forth and said, you know your max member roster as of right now is going to be 50 members, so really we've been trying to recruit and get up to that as best as we can," Green said.
