More People Mean More Calls

As the summer season gets going, more tourists begin to migrate to Door County. According to the Door County Visitor Bureau, there were over two million visitors in the 2018 tourism season. Chief Curt Vandertie of the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department says that more emergency fire and medical calls will happen because of the population increase.



Vandertie explained that day time help is difficult to find throughout the year. Because of the low volunteer level during the day, Vandertie says that the BUG Fire Department relies on help from the surrounding departments during the days when calls occur.
