CFD swears in Brown as newest firefighter/paramedic


Crawfordsville Clerk-Treasurer Terri Gadd swore in new firefighter/paramedic Spencer Brown to the Crawfordsville Fire Department after the Crawfordsville Board of Works meeting Wednesday.

Brown is a 2017 Brownsburg High School graduate from Brownsburg. He worked with the Putnam County EMS and Pittsboro Fire Department before joining the CFD.

“Spencer is a welcome addition to our team, and his past experience gives him the necessary tools to be successful in the department,” said Crawfordsville Fire Department Chief Scott Busenbark. “We are continuing to look for qualified individuals who can fill our department needs, and I am happy with the progress we have made thus far.”

Brown’s training includes the Ben Davis Area 31 Fire Science course and EMT certification through Hendricks Regional Health.

“I wanted to be a firefighter because every day is something different, and I love doing the most I can for people in their time of need,” Brown said. “I wanted to work for CFD because of the great working relationship the current guys on shift have with the chief and each other. I’m looking forward to a long and great career at the CFD.”

The Crawfordsville Fire Department is currently hiring and accepting applications until Jan. 28. For more information on the Department and how to apply,visit
