From the history of the Mount Rainier Volunteer Fire Department...

In approximately 1960, the Future Firemen of the Mt. Rainier Volunteer Fire Department was formed for boys 12 through 15 years of age with 10 members under the direction of William Cissel.  Others who worked with the Future Firemen were Thomas "Pete" Alsop, Jerry Chambers, and Clarence Booth, Sr.  Barry Earl Miller became the first member of the Department to advance from Future Fireman to Junior Fireman, to full-fledged Senior Fire Department member. The complete history of our department will be posted soon.
