Charles City Fire Chief Eric Whipple stopped by the studio this morning to talk about a number of items. The big news of the morning was Whipple announcing his departure from the fire department to take a position with Cerro Gordo County. He also encouraged those interested in becoming a firefighter to attend the physical agility test which is set for Saturday Oct. 1. Be at the fire station by 9:30am, as the test will begin promptly at 10am. He also recommends wearing comfortable “work” clothing and closed-toe shoes
Chris was born in Webster City and raised in Charles City. As a young kid, he would always be caught singing along to songs on the radio. He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
