On January 23, 2014 the Readington Volunteer Fire Company had one of its own become a Paid Career Firefighter in Montgomery County Maryland. Firefighter and LT in 2013 Dan Kaplan went through an intense long academy to become a paid career firefighter in Montgomery County Maryland where he was hired. Dan has been with the Readington Vol Fire Company since he was little due to his Father Bill Kaplan having over 35 years of service here on the department. Dan graduated on that Thursday and was assigned to his station where he will respond out of. Firefighter Kaplan graduated and received the "Best Academics Award" for graduating Recruit Class 38. We are all proud of him here at Readington Fire and wish him the best of luck in his future as a career firefighter. We know he will remember where he came from and we'll be glad to have him get on a truck again with us in the future when hes home. Be safe Dan and we will see you soon.
