We can’t do this alone

Marysville Advocate – June 13, 2018

When a fire, car crash or other emergency strikes someone in Marshall County, it’s often a crew of volunteers who answer the call for help.

Last week, the Advocate published its annual Senior Living section with this year’s focus on volunteers. Among the stories about countians who step up and offer their time and talents was a feature on Steve and Nancy Gleason. Steve is one of Frankfort’s volunteer firefighters and Nancy is on the town’s volunteer ambulance crew.

Their philosophy is “helping others, who hopefully will someday help us.”

Their comments crystalize what it takes to sustain rural Kansas as a caring, good place to live.

“No one can do this alone,” Nancy told the Advocate. “We have a super fire department and EMS staff and we are proud to be a small part of this great team. Teamwork is what it is all about.”

“Just remember that one day you or our your family will need help and someone needs to answer the call,” she said.

Frankfort’s Fire Department has 33 volunteers and the Frankfort Ambulance Service has 14. It is remarkable, to say the least, how they and other towns across the county maintain similarly committed crews.

Don’t forget to thank them when you have the chance.
