Drew and Lynn Kilgore have been volunteer firefighters for many years, Drew for 21 years, his wife for 16. Marty Chapman has been with Webster Parish Fire District No. 10 for about six years, and his wife, Barbara about six months. The Chapmans were part of the plant emergency organization, which included fire training, at Libbey Glass where they both worked for many years.
