FDL Fire Dept To Be Recognized For Traffic Safety Efforts

The Fond du Lac Fire Department will receive an award at the Governor’s 40th Annual Conference on Highway Safety Wednesday for their attention to safety at the scene of incidents they respond to. Assistant Fire Chief Steve Beer says it’s called the Traffic Incident Management Enhancement Outstanding Achievement Award. What it boils down to is making sure firefighters and paramedics and the public are safe and traffic keeps moving at accident and other fire scenes. He says that can mean attention to small details like reflective material on the equipment they wear or use at night time scenes. Beer says although it might not seem like it they place their vehicles strategically at the scene of an accident to protect their personnel and the public. Beer will accept the award for the department during the conference in Green Bay. Fond du Lac Fire Department photo.
