This week, we are recognizing Captain Sam Shanks of the Glenpool Fire Department.
"Sam is dedicated to the community and has a long history with Glenpool Fire Department,” says supervisor Chief Paul Newton. "He's an outstanding Captain and has been involved with many projects throughout the years that have allowed us to become the agency we are today."
Sam is a second-generation firefighter; his father was a longtime volunteer with the fire department before his retirement.
When asked what Captain Shanks does best, Chief Newton said, “Sam is a strong proponent of education and has helped set the standard for new employees for what it means to be a firefighter in Glenpool.”
We appreciate everything you do, Captain Shanks. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication.
