As a First Responder of about 30 years in two different communities, this topic is personal to me.

Adams County, along with the rest of Pennsylvania, is fast approaching a crisis. Back in the 70’s there were over 300,000 volunteers in our various ambulance, fire service and rescue organizations; today that number is down into the 30,000’s. That’s about 10% of the volunteers protecting us and our property.

Will Tallman is a former member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives (R-Adams) and current Chair of Adams County Republican Committee.
