New firefighter appointed

Evan J. Jacobs, a paramedic who previously worked for a private ambulance company, has been hired as a Marshfield firefighter, Fire Chief Kevin Robinson said. Jacobs replaces a firefighter who left the department in January, and will receive four weeks of in-house training, including a week on an ambulance, two weeks of basic fire training, and another week assigned to the group of firefighters with whom he will be working.
