High numbers for firefighting courses

Chiefs of Door County’s volunteer fire departments are smiling at the prospect of adding more members to their respective forces. Over twenty people for an average of two per department are wrapping up firefighting courses in the county, which made it necessary to have a northern Door and a southern Door class site to meet the demand. Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht says it comes at a time where every volunteer fire department could use some extra hands.

While the entry-level firefighting courses happen periodically throughout the year, Hecht encourages people to join their local volunteer departments year-round to fill any of the needs they may have.
