His first name is Jeff and he's from St. Cloud, Minn., but he'd rather not tell you too much more about himself -- except why he was at the Finland fire hall.


Last year, Jeff sustained injuries and lost consciousness in an ATV accident near his Lake County cabin. He credits the volunteers from Finland Fire and Rescue and Lake County Rescue-Finland for saving him.

A veteran of emergency services himself, he says he has now seen the profession from both sides.
