B.U.G. to host propane fire training

Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Chief Curt Vandertie is giving those near its station on May 27th plenty of warning about the 20 foot high flames they may see that evening. The B.U.G. Fire Department is hosting approximately 40 firefighters from other agencies in the area for propane fire training and a demonstration. The department is partnering with the Wisconsin Propane and Research Council for the training they have not hosted since 2008. Vandertie says serving a rural community makes propane fire training very important.

He adds that many local departments, including his own, have added new members recently, adding extra importance to the training. It is scheduled to take place at B.U.G. Fire Department’s station in Brussels on May 27th at 6 p.m.
