NYSSA – For more than 100 years, the Nyssa Volunteer Fire Department has protected the citizens of Nyssa and the surrounding area. Now, the department is seeking additional volunteers to fill out the ranks. 

If you are age 18 or older with a high school diploma or GED, you might be just the person the department is seeking. Applicants will need to pass a background and complete a drug screening. 

Applications can be obtained at Nyssa City Hall or at the fire department, on Good Avenue at South 2nd Street. To learn more about becoming a member, stop by Monday evenings when the department holds a meeting. 

There is also a student/junior firefighter program for those aged 18 who are completing their high school education or GED, with the opportunity to train and receive a certificate in wildland firefighting.

The community will have a chance to give back to the department at its annual dinner and dance Saturday, April 6. More information to come on this event.

• Thursday, March 21, is family movie night at the Nyssa Public Library. Due to licensing requirements, we are unable to publish the title of the movie. Stop by the library to learn which family-friendly movie will be shown.
