Behind the Badge Spotlight

Hello, I’m Austin Sweigart. I joined Manheim Township Fire Rescue in January of 2021. What inspired me to work in fire rescue? I’ve grown up around the fire service my whole life and knew that it was going to be my career path. My family has been my biggest motivation for continuing to achieve my goals. I love the uncertainty of each day and the challenges that that day may bring. Plus I love being able to have the opportunity to drive a fire truck everyday like every kids dream.

What do I like best about working in Manheim Township at MTFR? MTFR has allowed me to gain a wealth of knowledge while also aiding in advancing my career goals.
