"Public servants that want to help our community that want to be involved in something like this. I mean it does take a special person to do this job sometimes it is intense sometimes it's sad sometimes you get a lot of joy out of what you do but we need people that are willing to commit to it," said Freeman.

The service is hoping to recruit 5 more people. The deadline to sign up for the class is next Friday May 15th.The class is also free to first responders in the area.
