Member Profile: Aaron Brissman
Meet FF2/AEMT Aaron Brissman. Aaron has been on our neighboring department, Wadsworth Fire, since 2016, and joined The Rittman Fire Department in 2021. He enjoys serving others and the camaraderie of his teammates.
Aaron has been married to h
is wife, Erin, for 10 years. Together they have a 6-year-old son, Liam, a stepson Aiden, 16 years old, and a chocolate lab, Sophie. Some of his hobbies include: camping, hiking, skiing, traveling, and participating in Cub Scouts with his son.
His most memorable moment with Rittman: when the SWAT truck broke down in the middle of town on training night, and a parade of Fire vehicles towed it back to the station, which involved a lot of teamwork, dedication, and a whole lot of laughter!
When asked what advice he would give to someone whom wanted to enter the Fire/EMS service, Aaron states “Take pride in the job and in yourself. Continually improve yourself through additional education and training.” Aaron has not only taken his own advice, but has recently gotten a promotion within his full-time career, and will be relocating to Phoenix, AZ this summer.
Aaron will surely be missed, but will always remain a “brother” at the Rittman Fire Department!
