*Faces of the GBMFD*

This week we would like to proudly introduce Lieutenant/Paramedic Todd Santoro. Todd has been with the Green Bay Metro Fire Department for 22 years. As a Lieutenant, he enjoys the responsibilities and expectations of being an officer, while never forgetting what it’s like working up through the ranks. “The most rewarding part of coming to work is knowing you will be called upon to help someone, in some capacity, every single day.”
Outside of work, Todd enjoys working out, time with family and watching his wife baby food company grow and flourish. He especially loves spending time with his son, Jake, who has special needs. “He has been our little miracle, and every single day with him is a blessing beyond my wildest dreams.”

The siren on Lombardi just west of Oneida has been taken down and needs to be replaced. The replacement date by the City of Green Bay is TBD.

The siren on Howard Fire Station 2 is also down for repairs, siren maintenance hopes to have it up and running as soon as possible for the Village of Howard.

This is another opportunity to remind everyone to not solely rely on the sirens to receive a notification of tornadic weather. NOAA Weather Radios, smart phones, radio, and TV, are all good ways to receive weather information/alerts.

Be Prepared. Make a Plan. Stay Informed.

GBMFD crews earlier today were dispatched to the 800 block of Longview Avenue for a car that drove into a house. Upon arrival, crews found one car that had driven into the front of the home. One person was home during the incident. One individual did have minor injuries that were treated on scene. An estimated $15,000.00 in damage was done to the home. Brown County Sheriff's Department and Glenn’s Towing also assisted with the incident.

We would like to remind people to always be alert when behind the wheel of a vehicle. Please avoid cell phone use, eating food, reaching for items on the floor and other distractions while operating a vehicle. Please buckle up and drive safely!

*Friendly Reminder Alert*

Throwing away firework debris, duds, and even unused fireworks are a huge fire hazard. When disposing these items, the best practice is to soak them in a bucket of water overnight before placing them in the trash.

Thank you and have a safe rest of your weekend!

Sparklers can be a fun way to celebrate special events and holidays, like the 4th of July - if done in a safe matter. Did you know that sparklers burn at 1200 degrees Fahrenheit or even higher? Wearing shoes while using sparklers can help prevent painful injuries and burns.

Last week our crews were out at the NWTC training grounds going through consumption drills.

This drill helps our members understand how they can use compressed air from a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) bottle and their individual limitations while in a controlled environment. The goal of air management is to provide our firefighters with the knowledge of how long they can work until their low-air alarms go off.

Here’s a quick video showing some of our firefighters going through this drill 🚒

*Faces of the GBMFD*

This week we would like to proudly introduce Engineer/Paramedic Jerame Schueler. Jerame has been with GBMFD for 14 years and currently works out of Station 5. Jerame has worked with many different crews/stations throughout his career and says that his coworkers are his family away from home.

“One of the most rewarding aspects of this job is having the ability to put a patient at ease and getting them to smile. It makes you feel like you made a difference.”

Outside of work, Jerame enjoys spending time with his two daughters, watching them play sports, traveling and coaching softball.

*Fire on the East Side of Green Bay*

Last night fire crews were dispatched for the report of a house fire at the 1400 block of Emilie Street. On arrival, firefighters found heavy fire on the back exterior of the home. Crews were able to quickly knock down the exterior fire, but found the fire had extended into the basement and both the first and second floors of the home. Extensive overhaul was needed to check for and extinguish fire on all three levels. Crews were able to limit the fire damage to the rear portion of the home, but there was smoke and water damage throughout the house. No injuries were reported.

The family is staying with relatives until repairs can be made. GBMFD was assisted on scene by Green Bay PD, Green Bay DPW, and WPS.

Happy #Juneteenth2020, Green Bay!!!

Congratulations Captain Saduske! Enjoy retirement!

Congratulations Captain Saduske! Enjoy retirement!

On the morning of June 20th at 7 am, Captain Michael “The Mole” Saduske will walk out the doors of Station 2 one last time after faithfully serving the citizens and visitors of the City of Green Bay and Village of Allouez for the last 28 years. Captain Saduske started with the Green Bay Fire Department on February 2nd, 1992 as an EMT-Paramedic. Following High School, Mike faithfully served our country in the United States Air Force for 4 years. Prior to being hired on the GBMFD, Mike worked at the City of Eau Claire Fire Department for 4 months. He worked at various stations throughout his career climbing from the rank of Private, Engineer, Lieutenant, and finally Captain, with most of those years serving at 5’s and 2’s. The only station he never was assigned to was 8’s. Throughout his career, Mike has had many interesting calls. There is one that sticks out to him more than any of them, and that was while working on Med 5, they were dispatched to a pregnant female. When they arrived on scene, she was waiting for them in the driveway, and stated that she just wanted to be checked out since she thought she would go into labor soon. They loaded her up in the ambulance, and before they got to the end of the road, the baby was already on the way, and they had to pull over and delivered the baby at the intersection of Ontario Road and Tobermory Drive. When asked what Captain Saduske will miss the most, he stated he will miss the Brother and Sister Fire Fighters that he has served with throughout the years. With retirement, he is looking forward to continuing to grow his photography business, hunting, fishing, and golfing! Please help us in congratulating Captain Mike Saduske on his 28 years of service protecting the citizens and visitors of our great community from the perils of fire and medical emergencies…

First in crews were able to knock down the fire quickly; minimal damage was done to the structure. Everyone was able to evacuate safely, no injuries reported.
