Following a plan to convert Princeton Fire Department from a volunteer to a paid department, a second captain recently started duties.
Joining the department in a paid post was Capt. Blake Carroll, 26, who comes from Wylie Fire-Rescue where he had been a firefighter since October 2014. He had simultaneously been volunteering the working on a part-time basis at PFD since July 2013.
“This is about coming to a department to help develop it, to have an influence on its growth,” Carroll said. “I would like to stay in Princeton until retirement.”
