Kenneth Gilliland reached a five-year milestone with the Vicksburg Fire Department and was recognized for his service during Monday’s meeting.

Gililand serves as an EMT with the Vicksburg Fire Department. Chief Danczyk stated the five-year marker is a milestone.

“I was telling [Gililand] we have a couple of us in the audience, Chief Henry Williams, 44 years of service, and I have 27 years of service, but to get there you’ve got to get five years of service. So, he reached a milestone,” stated Danczyk.

Danczyk went on to state the department is taking applications for those interested in joining their team.
