Rain creating problems for firefighters

Conventional wisdom would suggest that wet weather would be welcomed by the Southern Door Fire Department, but it is creating challenges of its own. Captain Kim Starr says it can lead to as many problems as it solves by hindering efforts to get equipment to the site of the blaze on rural properties.

 


Southern Door Fire has a UTV to help get water and men to places where the fire trucks cannot go. Starr also points out that saturated ground destabilizes root systems for trees. If those trees fall on power lines, there can be an increased risk for electrical fires.
