Member Spotlight: Zack Baillis
This week’s spotlight features Firefighter/EMT Zack Baillis. Zack joined the Rittman Fire Department in 2019, and is the son of Andy Baillis, who has also been on the department for many years. Needless to say, Zack’s been around the fire service even prior to being born. He enjoys working alongside his father fighting fires and assisting the community. Along with putting in time with the Rittman Fire Department, Zack also works with our neighboring department, Chippewa Fire.
When Zack is not working at either department, you can find him building hardware and software for computers. Most people will say Zack is very knowledgeable regarding computers and gaming.
The most common question he gets from the lay person regarding the job is, “was it a busy night?” Zack’s response, “If you see 3 black cats roaming in front of the station, you know it’s going to be busy!”
Zack still resides in Rittman with his family and dog named Zeus.
He tells anyone interested in joining the Fire/EMS family, “Absolutely give it a shot! If I can do it, so can you.”
Zack and his team pride themselves on the quality of care they provide for their patients. Join them at Rittman Fire and Rescue!
