Firefighter Walks 25 Miles- Needs Donations

Posted: 02/16/2013 - If you were driving on Highway 24 near Divide Saturday, you may have seen a firefighter dressed in full gear, walking along the street. Nathan Quist started out from his house and Divide Saturday morning and walked 25 miles to raise money for the Victor Volunteer Fire Department. It took him nearly seven hours to get it done. He suited up so raise awareness and even drum up some support for new gear that should be replaced within 10 years. "With me doing this, it helps open up everybody's eyes and everybody now can see that they can help out and that we do struggle in this. We all do into these houses for free, and whatever support we can get is wonderful," Quist said. Quist told us it was a great accomplishment and that he did it for all his brothers and sisters of volunteer fire departments everywhere. If donations go well, he may consider doing it again next year. “The circumstances that I faced walking here, sweating, the blisters on the feet, it's nothing we don't face every day when we have to fight a fire. So if I could do this all again next year, I will,” Quist said. If you’d like to help Quist in his quest, go to the website below and listed here, to make a donation. Donations will be for the Victor Volunteer Fire Department. Quist said his guys need better gear especially with the bad fire seasons we have had. They have also had more structure fires this winter compared to years past.
