Meet Mark Turnbull Sr.

Mark has been a member of the New Hartford Fire Department for over 40 years, holding many different officer positions during that time. He's also a very proud member of Engine 11. Something he holds close to his heart.

He isn't the only Turnbull in the department either. Mark has also inspired his son, Mark Turnbull II, to follow in his father's footsteps and serve for the NHFD. Working side-by-side, Mark Jr. has been a member for many years as well.
