Fire chief celebrates 30 year anniversary



Huntman said he has tried to live his life and his work-life with the Golden Rule in mind.

"The Bible says to treat people like you want to be treated," Huntman said. "I've always had that philosophy. It doesn't always work out, but that's what you try to do."

Huntman said for 30 years, he has done the job "for itself."

"I like helping people," Huntman said. "Now, after 30 years, I'm thinking this is probably my last year. I'm going to consider (retiring). I'm looking for something to do besides being the fire chief."

Jefferson Fire Protection District is a volunteer/paid district, with about 30 volunteers and four paid officers.
