At 67, Randy White has been jumping into his turnout gear in the middle of the night for almost four decades. Last year, he was at 78 percent of the fires the Elgin Volunteer Fire Department responded to.
So it’s no surprise that White has been selected by his peers as Lancaster County’s first Firefighter of the Year.
White appreciates the honor, but he’s not really fond of being singled out for attention. He would rather be a part of the Elgin crowd than stand out from it.
