The Hinsdale fire department is made up of mostly volunteer first responders, but recently, the chief has noticed a downward trend in his numbers.

“As far as actual firefighters, we’re still down like everyone else is,” said Hinsdale Fire Chief Larry Turner.

He says the number of people willing to donate their time as volunteer firefighters is dwindling and the economy may be to blame. (Capital News 9)
