Behind the Badge Spotlight:
Hello, I’m Lamar Sauder of MT Fire Rescue. I joined MTFR in January of 2015 as the Fleet Mechanic. This was a newly created position at the time to oversee the entire fleet of 21 emergency vehicles.
It’s my responsibility to ensure everything is in a state of readiness to serve the community in time of need and everything is functioning properly for our firefighters.
As a lifelong resident of Lancaster County, my wife and I live in Willow Street where I continue to serve as a volunteer firefighter.
I enjoy spending time with family as well as trying new things on my Traeger smoker/grill. I’m still a work in progress to master the smoker.
I have been involved in the fire service for over 45 years. I’m a second-generation firefighter and being a mechanic, it was the best of both worlds.
I enjoy the challenge of to keeping the fleet maintained well and ready to help for any incident that may arise. I work with great people that care about protecting life and property as much as I do. We are a family here at MTFR.
