Nick Kiniski, a volunteer firefighter and emergency medical technician with the Point Roberts fire department since 1998, has become the department's new paid firefighter.
Kiniski will be joined by a lieutenant, also taken from the pool of NWFRS career firefighters, to split up six twelve hour shifts a week manning the fire station and the quick response vehicle, handling administrative duties and working with volunteers.Four hours a week each is banked for training.
Kiniski said he will continue to run the Reef Tavern with his new job."Change is good in life," Kiniski said."This gets me away from the bar." The position won't be much of a change for Kiniski, who has in the last few months worked as many hours as a full-time firefighter as a volunteer manning the quick response vehicle.
Joining the fire department as a volunteer in 1998, Kiniski has been a bit of an overachiever.He became an emergency medical technician a year later, and advanced to an intermediate life support EMT last year.In his four years with the department Kiniski has been firefighter of the year twice, EMT of the year twice and last year he put in over 3,000 hours as a volunteer.
"When people are in trouble I like to help them," is Kiniski's answer for why he was drawn to being a firefighter."I also like the camaraderie.Being on sports teams I always liked the team aspect and I missed that."However, there is a less lofty reason as well."I like to drive the big red truck," he said.
