A piece of Logansport history was made September 1.
Charity Musselman was sworn in by the Cass County Fire District 1 Fire Chief Steve Fisher to become the first full-time female firefighter in Cass County.
With firefighting in the blood, Musselman said she was inspired by her father, who happens to be chief of the Harrison Township Fire Department in Lucerne. Musselman also has an uncle and sister who work for that department, as well.
Musselman started her career volunteering for six years for the Harrison Township Fire Department where she earned her EMT and Firefighter I and II certifications.
Honored to make Cass County history, being the first full-time female fire-fighter in the area wasn't something Musselman thought about when she first accepted the job.
Aside from firefighting, Musselman still stays near her roots, helping her father on their family farm. She also works as a part-time artist, cultivating her other passion by working part-time at Pear Tree Gallery in Logansport, where she helps make frames and will soon be teaching art classes.
