Meet Cole Bobnick

A proud member since high school, Cole is a Lieutenant for the Richfield Springs Fire Department. Since joining, he's become an exterior firefighter and an EMT. Something that he loves the most about the job.

After graduating high school, Cole went to college to become a nurse because of how much he loves to help people. This past year, all while going to college, he has also been taking the AEMT class. When he's not busy taking classes, you can bet Cole is at the firehouse either washing the ambulance, restocking it or doing whatever needs to be done.

One of my favorite memories is going to Frontier Town in the Adirondacks. We always loved it when we would hop on the train and robbers would come alongside on horseback and try to take over. The rodeo was also a lot of fun. We made some great memories at Frontier Town. It has sat abandoned since 1998 but some of the attractions, yet overgrown, are still standing. Thanks to Antiquity Echoes' amazing video you can see what once was Frontier Town.
