Zachary Williams of Hawley, Texas is one of three new additions to the Sweetwater Fire Department.

Williams is married to Lacy, and the couple have a two-year-old named Bryson.
Bryan Buckley has also joined the Sweetwater Fire Department. Buckley, who has always been medically minded, studied Biology at McMurry University before taking courses at Cisco College and Texas State Technical College. He owns his own construction company, Dally Construction in Abilene, where he lives with his wife, Nichole, and their two boys, Matthew, 14, and Bryson, 10. Buckley is a firefighter and paramedic.
The third addition to the Sweetwater Fire Department is Chad Worth. Worth is a firefighter and EMT who lives in Abilene with his wife, Jenny, and their three children, Skyler, 5, Azariah, 4 and Allison, 2. Worth was persuaded by friends to join the fire academy in Abilene. He finished his training at Texas State Technical College and Cisco College.
