VIDEO: According to National Fire Protection Association, half of the firefighters today are between the ages of 30 and 49. At NWTC, they're having no problem in bringing younger people to the industry. Life as a firefighter — it's something Savannah Sinkula has been familiar with from a young age. "I'm a third generation firefighter, but a first generation career firefighter within my family," Savannah Sinkula, a Fire Medic student at NWTC, said. Now she's now making that career possible through the NWTC's Fire Safety program. "I enjoy it because it's a very hands on program and I'm a hands on learner," Sinkula said. A difficult experience, she said, inspired her to pursue this work. "I was in a car accident two years ago and after that I realized I wanted to help people like those that helped me," Sinkula said.
