Carmen started in the fire service in 1988 as volunteer firefighter. She worked her way up to a part-time position in 1993 and then became a career member of the West Chester Township Fire Department, Local 3518 in 2000.
Rich Goforth is a member of the Springfield Professional Firefighters, local 333. He has been on the job since 2008, is currently serving as the Secretary for Local 333, and is the co-chair of the OAPFF 4th district peer support team.
Jason has been with the Hamilton Fire Department for 12 years. He has been an ordained minister for 5 years. The idea of having a peer group within the OAPFF and our Local really struck a cord with him.
Since 1918, members of the Ohio Association of Professional Fire Fighters have been on the frontlines protecting lives and property of citizens across the Buckeye State – just as the OAPFF has been there to protect the interests and health and safety of those first responders.
