Birschbach Appointed Town Of FDL Fire Chief

The Town of Fond du Lac Board this week appointed Dean Birschbach as the new fire chief for their volunteer fire department. Birschbach has been with the department for 24 years, the past 19 years as first assistant chief. He replaces Craig Sandborn who died last month. Fond du Lac Fire Chief Peter O’Leary says Birschbach will do a good job for the township. He says it’s unfortunate the way the job opened open. He says Birschbach has a good supporting cast in the volunteer fire department.  He says Birschbach has the support of the Fire Chiefs Association if he needs it.
