Fire Department Volunteers Employed at Felling Trailers

October is National Fire Prevention month, so Felling Trailers has been showcasing our team members who volunteer for EMS and Fire Departments via social media. These team members range from welders, project managers, supervisors, and engineers.

Message from Felling Trailer’s CEO, Brenda Jennissen

Giving of one’s time and talent to benefit its local communities is important to Felling Trailers. Our founders started this tradition which we uphold today. Felling Trailers’ team members give their time and talent in various capacities: members or chairs of school boards, community foundations, civic organizations, coaching youth sports or organizations, and church committees to name a few. Most of these commitments occur “after-hours,” but some require support during their work schedule. Supporting our team members’ desires to serve on their fire departments may disrupt business operations, but the cause is much bigger and more important. Those team members are aiding people in need of help; often in dangerous or heartbreaking circumstances. Felling Trailers is proud of these individuals’ commitment to serving its community and taking the time to help those in need – often being the heroes in people’s lives. We are proud of and applaud our team members who are able to volunteer their time and talents to a greater good!       

“Supporting our team members’ desires to serve on their fire departments may disrupt business operations, but the cause is much bigger and more important.”

– Brenda Jennissen, CEO of Felling Trailers

Brian has been a Litchfield Fire Department volunteer for 11 years.

“The brotherhood is the best part of being involved. We take care of our own on and off the scene. It’s a family you are apart of forever, regardless. I have learned the importance of adaptability. Things are always changing on the fire scene and you have to adjust and react to those changes quickly. This has helped at home and at work.”
