Door County fire departments were well represented in Appleton at the funeral services for slain Firefighter Mitch Lundgaard. He was among three people struck by gunshots during a response to a medical emergency last week. Ephraim Fire Chief Justin McDonald says a contingent of firefighters from throughout Door County traveled together to pay their respects and to keep local departments staffed for emergencies.
Door County firefighters were among other departments statewide paying their respects and aiding Appleton firefighters. The Madison Fire Department provided an engine and five firefighters to help staff Appleton Fire Station 1 while members of Station 1 attended funeral services for Lundgaard.
