Fire Department responds in power outage

The Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department is showing it can help the community in a time of need without putting on their suits and hopping into a truck. The department’s Sister Bay station became a warming shelter Sunday night as reports came in from Wisconsin Public Service that some parts of the area may not get their power until Monday night. With elderly residents and others in rent-controlled apartments, Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht says opening its doors to the community was the right thing to do, even if it has only been a handful of people helped.

With help from Door County Emergency Services, Hecht says his department will check on residents that may be in need until the power comes back on.
