Joe joined the department in 1987 as an active member, soon after he became one of the first paid EMTs for Wrightsville Ambulance Inc. Firefighter/Paramedic Felus was also heavily active with the Columbia No. 1 Fire Department, moving his active status to social member here at company 41. Joe has been a loyal and dedicated friend to Wrightsville Fire Department ever since joining in the in the late 80’s. After stepping down as Chief of Columbia No. 1 Fire Department, Firefighter Felus then started another venture at Station 41 by becoming our grant writer. Over the past 6 years, he has been very successful in getting substantial funding through the FEMA Grant Programs. Members like Joe within the department is a huge benefit not only to the department but also to the community we serve.
We can’t thank Joe enough for his selfless actions and commitment to the Wrightsville Fire Department.
