‘You’ve gotta be the best’

The hiring process has been “very difficult” for Karen Greeley, who said that just shows how dedicated the firefighters are to their job.

“I was unsuccessful in the first recruitment that I applied [to], but there’s candidates here that have gone through four and five times. And that’s a lot of dedication and perseverance to keep trying to better themselves as a candidate to get there,” she said.
