We received some snow over the weekend and our Hydro Helper's were ready for the challenge!

🚒❄️🚒❄️🚒❄️🚒❄️🚒❄️🚒❄️🚒❄️

Even though we only saw a small amount of snow, a fire hydrant can easily get buried in a snow bank. Take a few minutes to make sure your fire hydrant is clear and ready if needed in an emergency🙂

🎄🚒2020 Holiday Wreath Program Wrap Up🎄🚒


The Green Bay Metro Fire Department has concluded the Holiday Wreath Program with a total of 4 residential fires from November 26th 2020-January 1st, 2021.

As we close out one year and enter another, many people around the world think of new goals and resolutions to better their lives. Adding fire safety to your New Years resolutions is something that everyone can do! Here are some fire safety tips to remember and practice throughout this year:

🚨Make sure you have working Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide detectors within the home.

🚨Plan and practice an escape plan with everyone in the home, including children and pets.

🚨Keep matches and lighters up high, out of reach of children. Use child safety locks on cabinets.

🚨Stay in the kitchen while cooking.

🚨Use a timer to help remind you that you are cooking.

🚨Have your furnace inspected by a licensed technician annually.

🚨Have your fire place chimney inspected on a year basis; soot buildup can easily cause a chimney fire. A chimney sweeping log does not remove sooor creosote from a chimney.

🚨Keep space heaters at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn.

🚨Plug heat directly in to the wall outlet; never use an extension cord.

🚨Turn off space heaters when you leave the room or when you go to bed.

*Fire on Green Bay’s East Side*

GBMFD was dispatched to the 1700 block of Lilac Lane, at 7:42 AM this morning, for the report of a possible structure fire. Dispatch reported smoke coming from the kitchen area and that occupants were attempting to get out. When emergency crews arrived, the occupants had made it out of the residence safely. The fire was located in one of the bedrooms and was extinguished. Firefighters performed overhaul and salvage operations. No injuries were reported. There was approximately $20,000.00 in damage.

We would like to remind everyone to make sure you have working smoke alarms within your home. Smoke alarms saved lives today with this incident. Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out.

Some photos from our Annual Gift Delivery to HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital 🎄🎅❄️🚒

2020 has been an unpredictable year for many of us, and as much as it has changed our lives, there are some traditions we couldn’t part with. Our annual gift delivery to HSHS St. Vincent Children's Hospital is one of our favorite days of the year, and we were not going to allow a pandemic stop us from making the children’s day, spreading holiday cheer! With the help of the amazing congregation at Central Church - Green Bay donating so many gifts out of the kindness of their hearts, we were able to get them all wrapped up this morning. With not being able to enter the hospital this year, a heartfelt handoff to the amazing nurses and staff at the Children’s Hospital ensured our gifts would be delivered! And a phone call to Santa and his elves at Green Bay Metro Fire Department, brought Truck 2 and the Big Man himself, for a window visit to all of the children that are not able to be home for the holidays! Thank you to everyone that made this possible, and don’t forget that as much as this year has been different, the spirit of the Holiday Season will never change...

12/22/2020

COVID-19 has changed and canceled many events but there is one tradition we couldn’t do without this year and that was our annual gift delivery to HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital 🎄

Every year, the amazing congregation at Central Church - Green Bay donates Christmas gifts for children of various ages and wrap them all for delivery. The recipients of this generous donation are all pediatric patients that are currently being hospitalized.This year, our Green Bay Metro Fire Fighters weren’t able to go inside the hospital but the nurses and staff at HSHS St. Vincent Hospital were there to ensure gifts were delivered. A call was also made to the North Pole to request assistance for some extra holiday cheer, Santa himself 🎅

Thank you to everyone that made this special day possible!

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

Battalion Chief Wiegert started with the Green Bay Fire Department on July 24th, 1989. Prior to being hired on GBFD, Chief Wiegert worked at Valders Fire Department for 10 years and Stevens Point Fire Department for 4 months. He spent a majority of his career at Station 2 climbing through the ranks of Private to Lieutenant, and ending as a Battalion Chief at Station 1. His specialty as a Battalion Chief was the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System, emergency apparatus, and equipment. When asked what Chief Wiegert will miss the most, he stated he will miss the interaction with people and the crews at the stations.

Please help us in congratulating Battalion Chief Robert Wiegert on his 31 years of service protecting the citizens and visitors of our great community. We wish Chief Wiegert a long, healthy, and happy retirement!

Congratulations Engineer Jeff Huget on your retirement!

Congratulations Engineer Jeff Huget on your retirement!

On the morning of December 10th at 7 am, Engineer Jeff Huguet walked out the doors of Green Bay Metro Fire Department one last time after faithfully serving the citizens and visitors of the City of Green Bay and Village of Allouez for the last 17 ½ years. Engineer Huguet started with the Village of Allouez Fire Department on July 23rd, 2013 as an EMT-Paramedic. Prior to being hired on the GBMFD, Jeff worked for Ashwaubenon Public Safety for 2 years. Climbing from the rank of Private to Engineer, he spent most of his career working at Station 8, even following the merger of Allouez Fire Department to Green Bay Metro Fire Department. He spent the last couple of years at Station 4 on the far West Side. He was also a member of the TEMS (Tactical EMS) Team, a team that assists our counterparts in the Green Bay Police Department’s SWAT Team. Throughout his career, Jeff has had many interesting calls, however some that stood out to him were delivering a breech newborn baby, a successful pediatric resuscitation, and a call for a car that had driven off of 172 into the wetlands, and Engineer Huguet was able to dive down, and bring the patient out, followed by successful resuscitation efforts! When asked what Jeff will miss the most, he stated he will miss the Brotherhood and Sisterhood, knowing he has such a supportive group for a 2nd family! With retirement, Jeff might return to school, however he looks forward to enjoying more time with the family and taking every day as it comes! Please help us in congratulating Engineer Jeff Huguet on his 17 years of service protecting the citizens and visitors of our great community from the perils of fire and medical emergencies…

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.
