First Farmers is saddened by the recent passing of Scott Bettisch.
Scott was the Downs Community Fire Protection District EMS Chief. He spent his career helping those who battle fires, but sadly a hard-fought battle with colon cancer is one Scott could not win. We extend our sympathies to Scott's family and friends.
To help defray some of the financial costs, family and friends of Scott are organizing a benefit fundraiser. Please consider attending the benefit to "help the family of a hero"...
