City of Bryant hires two new firefighters

July 31, 2014

The Bryant Fire Department has added two firefighters, Brad Bush of Hot Springs and Jose Valdez of Bryant.

Bush said he chose to become a firefighter because he "wanted to help people without being a police officer like the rest of my family," he said.

He says he enjoys being involved with the community, fighting fires and responding to medical calls, he said.
"He is quiet and respectful and quickly learning," said Fire Chief J. P. Jordan. "He is built like a bull and just as strong."
