Fire merger

In nearby Calumet County, the Town of Harrison fire departments and first responders are merging. To illustrate the story I spent an evening at a joint training session. Lucky for us, the training was taking place on a tower about 80' above the highest ground in the valley (High Cliff)... not to mention it was all going down at sunset!

The sun sets over Lake Winnebago as Lt. Mark Vanderzee of Harrison Fire Department No. 1, left, prepares a tripod and pulley system with his fellow firefighters during high-angle rescue training atop the tower at High Cliff State Park in Sherwood, Wis., Thursday evening, July 24, 2008. Plans are advancing for a Jan. 1, 2009, merger between the Town of Harrison Fire Departments No. 1, No. 2 and First Responders. They have already begun training together.
