The Cowden Fire Department is a volunteer based department, and according to Fire Chief Jim Allsop, it takes a special kind of person to work a job as demanding as fire fighting for no pay.

 

Allsop says one benefit the Cowden Fire Department has is how the various city departments in Cowden work together to help each other when that help is needed.

 

 

Allsop praised the people who have stepped forward to work for the fire department in Cowden, saying it takes a special kind of person to do the job on a volunteer basis.

 

 

Allsop appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Hometown Tour broadcasting live from the Cowden Community Building.
