Volunteer firefighters protect most of rural Utah, and since they’re only paid when on a call, save taxpayers money. But in North Logan, the city and calls are growing. Brian Champagne explains why North Logan city council voted to merge their volunteer fire department with neighboring Logan’s paid one.

Brian Champagne grew up in the less-famous Central California but left after starting his television news career there. He worked 22 years in news for NBC, ABC, Fox, and CBS affiliates in four markets. He served as chief photographer for KTXL-TV in Sacramento, but worked in front of the camera, too.
