Paying it forward: Firefighting’s in his blood

Captain of Reno department nears 40 years of service

January 6, 2014
The Marietta Times

Ted Patterson is nearing four decades of service with the Reno Volunteer Fire Department, holding the title of the most tenured volunteer at the department. Patterson was born and raised in Marietta, and after a short stint away as a child, has called the area home ever since. With a small, close-knit community, the day-to-day work as a volunteer firefighter can often hit home, whether it's leaving a hot meal on the table to run out on a call or responding to accidents involving people he knows. Still, he describes his long-standing service to his community as a rewarding feeling.
