For more than 30 years, no matter the time of day or the weather conditions, if people in Crittenden, needed help, Dave Owen was there.
Owen served as the volunteer fire chief of Crittenden and spent many nights, weekends and holidays helping people, either by fighting a fire in their home or business or rendering first aid as a first emergency responder.
He wasn’t paid but gave of his time because he wanted to help his community. He wanted to give back.
After 30 years of service, Owen stepped down as Crittenden’s fire chief recently.
