Emergency Support Coalition not slowing down

Their tasks have changed since March, but the goals of the Door County Emergency Support Coalition and its 600-plus stable of volunteers have not. On Wednesday, the organization will help vaccinate residents at Good Samaritan Scandia Village in Sister Bay to protect them from COVID-19 after helping out with flu shots earlier this year. It is a far cry from the food distribution events, polling site cleanings, and the dozens of other opportunities that have come up since the Door County Fire Chiefs Association formed in March to discuss what they could do to help the community get through the pandemic. Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht gives all the credit to the volunteers and the variety of tasks they have been asked to do.

Hecht’s Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department joined forces with local businesses and community partners on Christmas Eve to distribute over 250 meals to people across northern Door County.  He says it is just another example of “Door County being Door County.” If you’d like to volunteer, you can reach out to the Door County Emergency Support Coalition by clicking this link.
