Corey Turner knew from the time he was in middle school that he wanted to be a firefighter, but the math required for the job didn’t always come easy for him.

Turner started visiting the Fruitdale Fire Department in Brown County when he was in middle school, and he’s wanted to join the fire department ever since. He’s taken firefighting, hazardous materials and EMT training at the Central Nine Career Center, and he hopes he’ll soon be able to join a fire department somewhere in the state and train to be a part of a search and rescue team.

“I (want to) go through the buildings, crawl around and look for things,” Turner said. “I like the more dangerous work.”
