SHIPSHEWANA, IN - The town of Shipshewana is bringing in its first ever full-time fire chief.
Town officials say they have hired
Sean Ellis to fill the role of the town’s first ever full-time fire chief. Ellis is originally from Virginia and is coming from fire-fighting in Saudi Arabia.
Officials hope Ellis will give the volunteers on the job a better sense of direction and the town another added layer of protection it did not have before.
Ellis is expected to begin his role as full-time fire chief in February.
