Ratchford, Ken

Ken Ratchford, a Raymond native, joined Raymond Fire & Rescue in 2015. Ken promptly completed his EMT licensure in 2016. Ken mentioned that he is meeting aspirations following a unfortunate situation in his younger days

Many years ago, Ken's family experienced what we all dread, a fire in the family's home. "I was the first person to find the fire in the kitchen. We called 911 and I was just amazed by how fast the fire department got there and how fast they saved our house from the fire and ever since that day I wanted to be a firefighter." Ken admitted. Ken said that everyone was in the house but escaped safely!

Outside of the fire department Ken works for Manheim Milwaukee Auto Auction. Ken's Fire Department family enjoys hes enthusiasm and willingness to assist whenever asked.
