About Our Photographers

Our photographers are not paid employees of the City of Wheeling, nor are they firefighters with the Wheeling Fire Department. The WFD allows them to be on fire/rescue scenes, as long as they conduct their business in a safe and professional manner. The photos & videos are used for training purposes, to aid investigators, and to create a historical record of what happened for the firefighters themselves. Our photos/videos are also given to local news agencies. We do not sell them to the local news agencies. All Wheeling's Bravest Photographers wear vests/shirts that say Fire Photographer on them and our primary Fire Photographer wears an ID card to be identified.
