Poteau Fire Department Chief Jon Pickel told members of the Poteau Kiwanis Club in its Thursday afternoon meeting at Western Sizzlin that the department is always needing bodies.

“We’re always looking for new firemen,” Pickel said. “We just put on four new boys a couple of months ago — Kale Holton, Christopher Mabala, Brady Fox and Gavin Garrett. I’m anxious to get those boys acclimated. It’s always an ongoing struggle to get people."
