North Vernon/Center Township Fire Dept.
The newest member of the North Vernon/Center Township Volunteer Fire Department brings a wealth of experience to local residents' peace of mind.
Aaron Poole, 32, has spent half his life as a fireman thanks in large part to the influence of his grandfather, Bill Branham, former chief at the Vernon department.
As a young man, Poole attended a fish fry fundraiser in the county seat and was handed a shirt and hat as a cadet through the Explorer program of the Boy Scouts. Once he turned 18, he was able to become an official member of the squad and participate in all training and on-scene fire-fighting.
In 2001, his commitment to a life in fire fighting was sealed when he traveled to New York City with members of the Vernon Fire Department to help after 9-11. "Six of us went as they (NYC rescuers) switched to recovery."
