Year Founded

Founders
Doc and Dorsey Page

Purpose of Fund
To provide financial support for the care and maintenance of the fire safety training center in Greencastle, Indiana.

History of Fund
Alfred "Doc" Page was a leader in Putnam County since 1969, when he and his wife began teaching advanced first aid and CPR. Over the years, he developed a passion for safeguarding lives by preparing responders to cope with any situation they might encounter. It was through his vision of developing a better way to train firefighters that the idea for a training facility in Putnam County was born.

At the age of 77, Alfred P. “Doc” Page III and his wife continued to help people in need and to teach others to do the same. Doc was a reserve member of the Greencastle Fire Department and served as one of the safety officers. On June 12, 2010, the Putnam County Emergency Services Training Grounds was rededicated as the Dr. Alfred Page Emergency Services Training Grounds.

Doc and Dorsey Page wanted to assure that high level training continue to be provided to Putnam County fire fighters and responders. “Right now, all the equipment at the training facility is brand new,” Doc said. “But it will have to be replaced eventually.” He and his wife, Dorsey, established the Doc and Dorsey Page Endowment for Fire Safety Training as a first step toward ensuring the long-term success and sustainability of the Training Grounds.
