(Lander, WY) – KOVE 1330 AM / 107.7 FM’s Coffee Time host Vince Tropea recently chatted with Lander Volunteer Fire Department (LVFD) Chief Chief Bobby Johnston, along with past Chief, Captain and 23-year-member Jeremy Bingaman, about this year’s Wyoming State Firemen’s Association Convention.
The annual convention, which just concluded its 89th year, moves around the state each year, with this year’s taking place in Lander (next year will be in Riverton).
Bingaman served as the Wyoming State Firemen’s Association President this year, which also changes yearly based on where the competition is being held.
Bingaman shared the history of the event and gave us a breakdown of some of the competitions at the convention, and both discussed the camaraderie that comes with becoming a firefighter and competing with like-minded folks from around the state.
In addition to talking about the convention, Chief Johnston also chatted about how folks can have a safe 4th of July, and the overall need for more volunteer firefighters.
