5 Days and counting!!!

Playing in traffic......

In our district, we cover a lot of highway. I-94, U.S. Hwy 12, U.S. Hwy 20 and S.R. 149, several miles of two and three lane highway is ours to protect. With a majority of our service area being industrial, with steel production as well as finishing mills, we have an extreme amount of truck traffic. We have been lucky not to have had any members injured or any accidents while working calls. With that being said, I think we have out tactics and training to thank for no unfortunate incidents.…See More

           With another Christmas officially in the books, it's time to again look to the future. Included in that future is the ever changing face of your district. There is no better time then the present, to get out there and check on what is being built, how are they building it and what would you do, should you have to respond to an incident there. We have three booming subdivisions being thrown together and thrown together quick, the one is putting about two new homes under roof a…
