On The Move

March 13, 2017

Promotions are something special. It's difficult to become a firefighter, and even more difficult to be selected among your peers to fill leadership roles in the department. These firefighters exemplify the values of the Casper Fire-EMS Department - we're proud to have them, and they are proud to serve Casper.

Congrats to all!

From Engineer to Captain: Chad Denton

From Firefighter to Engineer: Jeremy Bledsoe

From Probationary Firefighter to Firefighter: Troy Heib and Matt Thomas
