The Public Opinion
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Monday wasn't a typical day for firefighter Jason Kuehler, not because he was called to an accident on Interstate 81 at 7 a.m., but because this was the first time in almost a year that the firefighter was able to respond to any emergency calls.
As the assistant fire chief of the Franklin Fire Company in Chambersburg and a firefighter with the Alexandria, Va. fire department, Kuehler had his first day back Monday.
