Recruit Update: Week 7

We are starting to get close to graduation day!

Early in the week, recruits trained on rapid intervention team (RIT) tactics, MAYDAYS, and self rescue. These skills are crucial in improving firefighter safety and survival during the event of a emergency.

Firefighters took a break in drills towards the end the week and were out in the community. In every GBMFD recruit academy, there is a community service project/day. This year the recruits picked up garbage and helped clean up the Broadway district.

*Incident Release*

**Fire on Green Bay’s East Side**

Green Bay Metro Fire crews were dispatched to the 1000 block of Heyrman Street for the report of a garage on fire. On arrival, heavy fire was seen coming from the garage area with heavy smoke coming from the house. Crews used several handlines to knock the fire down from the exterior and then proceeded into the home for final extinguishment. The garage portion of the home is a complete loss and the home sustained heavy fire and smoke damage.

Fire crews were assisted on scene by GBPD, DPW, Green Bay Water Utility, and WPS.

Recruit Update: Week 4

Another busy week for the recruits! Recruits were out at NWTC today and had a chance to use the Flashover simulator.

Flashover is a thermally-driven event, which every combustible surface exposed to thermal radiation in a compartment or enclosed space rapidly and simultaneously ignites. These firefighters were taught to recognize warning signs of a flashover and the ventilation effect on interior room conditions.

*Incident Release*

**Fire on Green Bay’s East Side**

At approximately 12:00 AM the Green Bay Metro Fire Department responded to the report of a structure fire in a single family residence. Initial reports stated that the family was evacuating and one 12 year old party was unaccounted for. Upon arrival, companies found heavy smoke and fire conditions issuing from the second floor windows and roof line. Aggressive search and fire control efforts were immediately initiated and the fire was under control within 10 minutes. Additional overhaul was performed to fully extinguish the fire for approximately one hour. The 12 year old family member was later found by the Green Bay Police Department at a family member's home located down the street from the location, uninjured. One family member received minor burns escaping the blaze and was treated and released. Two Green Bay Police Officers were also transported to a local hospital for smoke inhalation and released. Six people were displaced due to the fire and the structure is a total loss, estimated at $245,00.

The fire remains under investigation by the Fire Marshal's office at this time. Assisting agencies include the Green Bay Police Department, Green Bay Street Department, WPS, and Red Cross.

Greetings, This message is for Green Bay Metro Fire Med 7's Rich and Scott. The family of Shirley Dixon would like to thank you so much for your visit on Saturday March 20th. During this visit two days before my mother's 95th birthday both Rich and Scott drove up to Moraine Ridge in their work vehicle to visit my mother for her birthday. When they arrived, in front of all the folks at Moraine Ridge they requested my mom's presence, and to the delight of her and everyone outside, sang happy birthday to her. Just wanted to let you guys know that you 'nailed it' and the impact you made on our mom, grandma and great grandma was huge. Not only did you make her day you made the whole family's day as well as giving all the folks at Moraine Ridge something to talk about with my mom the queen of all conversations. Once again Rich and Scott we would all like to thank you so much for going out of your way to make the day of such a beautiful lady. In addition to your soulful rendition of happy birthday, the signed birthday card was a nice touch. All the best You guys rock
Thank you so much to fire station 4 for making todays birthday party that much more special. You helped make memories that will last a lifetime!❤
Thank you for your donation to our fire department. They need the safety equipment so badly. It is through the generosity of people like you that keep our teams safer and helps them to do a better job. Our current equipment, if they have any at all, is very limited. All the water trucks have rusted-out holes in them and have to constantly refilled with water that will leak out in a day or so. Interesting that there is a hydrant in from of the fire station that does not work so they have to go to other places to get water. They do other things as well such as respond to emergencies not related to fires. My neighbor had a heart attack and the fire department arrived is no time to take over my CPR, but unfortunately, the patient later died at the hospital. They picked him up in a pick-up truck they borrowed from someone in the neighborhood of the fire station as their only operating truck was out on a brush fire call. The fire department has a lot of support from the Ex-Pat community with donations or cash for fuel for the trucks to or to pay for mechanical repairs. Most are volunteers but we have some full-time staff. When the siren sounds it is major and everyone who knows anything about fighting fires turns out. Usually, they go to the station and find out where they are needed and drive or take a taxi there. So, we have people in shorts and tee shirts with flip-flops fighting a fire or helping with the hoses. Our fire department also fills swimming pools for which the property owner pays a very reasonable cost. I have 3 pools on different properties and tip them very generously when I need them. About once a week most people who support the department drop off a few liters of Coca-Cola, which is sort of the national soft drink. We try to have a fundraiser once a year but since Covid, we have been able to do so. Thank you very much for your support. By the way, they keep the original logos on the equipment, so it is not unusual for the Salt Springs fire truck to make calls or to see people with helmets from almost every state. Thanks again. Your contribution will be appreciated. -- Glenn Koons, Granada, Nicaragua.
I've been searching for Tim Hattendorf for many years. He was a good friend of my husband David O'Halloran. If anyone knows how to reach Tim, please message me or ask him to message me if he is on Facebook. Your help is much appreciated.
HUGE shout out to the Green Bay Fire Department and Station 6!! Lt. Mark Polomis, Engineer Tyler Kreiter, and Firefighter Matt Maleport all gave up part of their morning last Sunday to help this boy recover a runaway Drone. While we were visiting family in Green Bay from out of town and trying to get a family drone pic, it got blown away quickly by some wind gusts and landed about 30 feet high in a tree. With no solution in sight, we stopped by the fire station, and Lt. Polomis and his crew had it down (safe and sound) in less than an hour!!!! Thank you so much for your help!! Thane loves his drone and you have gained some big fans. Putting yourselves in danger is a given, but it is these little things that make all of you so awesome to have serving in the community! Thanks again Green Bay Metro Fire DepartmentMetro, Station 6, and Mark, Tyler, and Matt!! Elizabeth Lamer Brownell, Tara Danielson, Matt Tauriainen, Jodi Olson
EDIT: SEE POST ABOVE!!! THANK YOU GBMFD!!! GBFD, we need some help. We are from out of town, and my son was flying his new drone with family. The wind took it and we can't get it down. I know it is crazy, some a kind heart and some friendly Green Bay hospitality would make this 12 year old's day.
