Vic Miller: Firefighter/Paramedic (1981 - 2004)
It has been a very rewarding career here with Miami Township. And it all started with the Miamiville Fire and EMS Department where I began this journey as a volunteer in the fall of 1981. It was there that I fell in love with the endeavor of helping people when they needed it the most. I had just completed my enlistment with the US Air Force where I developed a desire to work as a public servant.
I received my EMT certification that same year and then obtained my fire certifications the following year. I performed my duties as a volunteer with Miamiville F.D. until April of 1989 where I was fortunate to receive a full time appointment as a Medic/ Firefighter in which I performed these duties as well as still volunteering at that same time. The following year of 1990 the Miamiville F.D. was merged by Miami Township Fire Services as an interim until Miami Township took over all the duties of Fire and EMS protection for the residence's of the Township of Miami.
So as anyone can see I have seen some changes with the department over the years and will miss the constant change and growth that the department has had. But I am also looking forward to the future where I will still remain active with the fire department but as a non-traditional volunteer.
