The Green Bay Metro Fire Department would like to congratulate Battalion Chief Steve Sellin on his retirement!

Chief Sellin began his career in the fire service in 1990 and joined GBMFD on March 28th, 1994. He worked a majority of his career at Station 2 while working through the ranks of Firefighter, Engineer and Lieutenant. In 2013, he was promoted to Battalion Chief. Chief Sellin served on the Honor Guard and was a team leader for the Hazardous Materials Team and the Urban Search & Rescue Team. GBMFD will greatly miss his wealth of knowledge, experience, and humor that he continuously brought to our department.

Please help us in congratulating Battalion Chief Steve Sellin on his 26 years of service protecting the citizens and visitors of our great community. We wish Chief Sellin a long, healthy, and happy retirement!

**Incident Release**

*Fire on Green Bay’s West Side*

GBMFD units were dispatched for a structure fire at 875 Lombardi Avenue with smoke coming from a building. Initial fire units on scene reported a vacant restaurant with smoke coming from the eaves and that all windows were blackened with soot. Crews on scene attacked the fire through the entry glass doors to the business and encountered heavy smoke and high heat inside. Once inside, crews were able to extinguish the fire and get it under control in about 10 minutes. An area that contained a large fish tank was found to have started on fire and progressed to booths, tables and other areas of the restaurant. Due to the size of the structure, the incident was upgraded to a second alarm.

The GBMFD was assisted on scene by GBPD, Brown County Dispatch and WPS.

Today is National Move Over Day and with this day we would like to give a friendly reminder to our community.

Wisconsin’s Move Over law requires drivers to move out of the lane closest to emergency or service vehicles stopped along the highway with warning lights on, or slow down if they’re unable to move over. The law not only applies to law enforcement and first responders but also tow trucks and highway maintenance vehicles.

Everyday nationwide, firefighters, police officers, paramedics, tow truck drivers or other service workers are being struck and/or killed when motorists fail to move over.

Help make sure that everyone goes home safely.

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.
