On April 7th, the Templeton Community Service District Fire Department swore in four new firefighter trainees to the position of firefighter.

Craig Pennington, Scott Groomer, Luke Doolin and Trevor Aguilar were sworn in by Interim Fire Chief Keith Aggson.

All of the firefighters participated in a six month training process that included both hands-on and intensive standard operations policy training. The training concluded with a cumulative performance evaluation of related firefighting tasks.

Craig Pennington joined the Templeton Fire Department in September 2014 as a firefighter/EMT. Pennington has recently graduated the Allan Hancock College Fire Academy and is a state certified EMT. Pennington most recently represented Templeton Fire Department in the Seattle “Stair Climb” which raised over $9,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. As part of this ceremony, Pennington repeated the oath of office and was pinned with his firefighter badge by his Father Kurt Pennington, a 22-year veteran fire captain.

Scott Groomer joined the Templeton Fire Department in September 2014. Groomer has recently graduated the San Luis County Paid Call Firefighter Fire Academy and is a state certified EMT. Groomer also works full time as a firefighter/EMT for the Atascadero State Fire Department. Groomer was pinned with his firefighter badge by his girlfriend, Christy, who has supported him throughout his pursuit to become a firefighter.

Trevor Aguilar joined the fire service as a cadet firefighter with the City of Atascadero Fire Department. He joined the Templeton Fire Department in July 2014 as a firefighter. Aguilar is involved in his church’s worship band and is presently attending Allan Hancock College Fire Academy. Aguilar was pinned with his firefighter badge by his mother Jill Aguilar.

Luke Doolin joined the Templeton Fire Department in August 2014 as a firefighter/EMT. Doolin graduated the Allan Hancock College Fire Academy and is a state certified EMT. Doolin is a youth leader for Atascadero Bible Church and also maintains a reserve firefighter position with the Atascadero City Fire Department. Doolin was pinned with his firefighter badge by his mother, Christie.

“I believe these three firefighters will serve the community well and that Templeton is extremely lucky to have the firefighters of this quality and integrity on the Templeton Fire Department,” said Interim Fire Chief Keith Aggson.
