Sylva Fire department a big old thumbs up.
I just graduated from Western and during my senior year I asked and was allowed to do my con ed with Sylva Fire. I was worried that I would be an outsider and not well accepted. I met them and they took me in like I was a lifelong member. They welcomed me at their trainings, and dinners. I was told even after I left I was told I will always be welcome there at the station. The guys there are some of the best I have ever met and I would not hesitate for a second to go in with any of their firefighters. If you're ever in Sylva stop by. Once you get by their unripe (yellow);) firetrucks you'll find the finest group of men I have seen in a long time.
