ROCHELLE — Ryan Baylor always knew what his career path would be and on April 1 he was the most recent firefighter and paramedic hired to serve the City of Rochelle.

“I grew up around the firehouse because my dad was a fireman and as the years went on, I wanted to learn more about the fire service,” he said.

His father has been serving the Ashton community as a firefighter for many years.

Baylor has eight years fire service experience, is a national registered EMT-Paramedic and has Firefighter II designation.

“My responsibilities are to administer care in the ambulance,” he explained. “The other obvious aspect is fire suppression and prevention, along with helping other people in the department learn as I learn from them.”
