Door County fire departments train off the beaten path

Saturated ground is causing some fire trucks to get stuck when out on calls. Northern Door County departments conducted joint training last week to help avoid that scenario. Baileys Harbor, Ephraim, and Gibraltar Fire teamed up for an exercise near Mud Lake. The state wildlife area sits in the heart of the three districts, but Ephraim Fire Chief Justin MacDonald said most of the guys had never been there. Mud Lake is remote and has proven a challenge if a blaze breaks out in the past, according to MacDonald.

 


June’s exercises were the first joint drills in 90 days. Typically, the departments meet on the third Tuesday of the month.
