Broken Into - An emergency vehicle owned by the Emergency Rescue Squad in Marinette was broken into and vandalized during the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 8, or or early morning hours of Thursday, Sept. 9 while it was parked at the home of one of the ERS, Inc., members in the 1500 block of Daggett Street in Marinette. Items taken included a defibrillator, computer, oxygen bottles and various medical supplies and gas card. Sharon Kamin, is pictured inside the vandalized vehicle. She stated that due to the vandalism, that unit will be out of service for at least 10 days possibly delaying response to medical calls. Kamin stated ERS has turned over the information to the rescue squad’s insurance carrier but the organization still has to pay the $1,000 deductible. Kamin also stated it is a shame that someone would want to take medical equipment needed to help someone in their time of need. It was reported that as of Tuesday some of the items have been returned. The Marinette Police Department is investigating the incident.

Rest In Peace

Rest In Peace

It is with great sadness that we pass along the news of the death of retired Fire Chief, Joe Giver. Chief Giver had a remarkable 42-year career in the Wisconsin fire service, including 24 years as chief in Marinette, Dousman then Verona before retiring in 2020. Chief Giver and his wife, Darla recently relocated back to Marinette where he decided to continue serving the community as a volunteer firefighter with the Town of Peshtigo Fire Department. We will miss the opportunity to work again with our brother and we extend our sincere condolences to Darla and the entire Giver family. RIP Chief! We've got your back and know that you will be watching over ours as well.

We are all volunteer here to help all in need of our services. Shame on whoever did this. Please know that your thoughtlessness may prevent us from caring for the wonderful people in our community who may need us.

Last night/early morning one of our transport ambulances was broken into while parked at the home of one of our dedicated volunteers in the Daggett St. area of Marinette.

The inside of the vehicle was trashed and several bags and pieces of equipment were stolen, including an AED, a portable radio, an iPad, oxygen bottles, and much more.

Early damage and loss estimates are in the THOUSANDS of dollars. Additionally, due to the equipment loss, we have had to place that vehicle out of service for the time being, which means we have one less rescue truck available to respond to 911 calls.

If anyone has any information regarding this incident, please contact the City of Marinette Police Department.

Thank you for any and all assistance you can provide to determine who is responsible for this act and for any help aiding in the recovery/replacement of lost equipment so we may get this truck back on the road sooner rather than later. (FYI: In the meantime, we will still be responding to 911 calls with our other vehicles.)

Thank you again.

Construction ahead!
Two separate construction events that will impact local traffic start this week. Canadian National Railroad will be doing a complete renovation of their crossing on County T / Roosevelt Rd. This will mean T/ Roosevelt Rd will be closed starting Tuesday Sept 7th until completion on Sept 13th. The posted detour is highlighted in yellow. This construction will greatly impact traffic around the Mall shopping area, please be patient and allow yourself extra time to get to your destination, and if possible take an alternate route.

Simultaneously the median on Highway 41 at Country Meadows Ln will be closed. What this means is you will no longer be able to cross over and go left from either side, it will be right in / right out. Please avoid trying to use this crossover once the signs are up. Patrols will be added to enforce the construction zone rules.

Both closed sections are highlighted in orange, the median closure is being set up ahead of the Wisconsin DOT planned construction of permanently closing the median.

*****Our phone lines are back up and operational*****

Marinette County Sheriff’s Office and Dispatch Center’s administrative phone lines are down. Technicians are working on fixing the problem.

911 is still working.

Please, please do not call 911 unless it’s an emergency. We are getting calls on 911 to tell us our phones are not working or asking questions that are not emergent, or to be transferred to the Jail. Non- emergent calls on 911 causes a traffic jam and takes away valuable time for true emergencies.

Thank you for your patience.

Come on out and see us Tuesday night!

Police Chief Rick Badgley Retires,
Mike Sievert Named Interim Chief

Peshtigo Police Chief Rick Badgley announced his pending retirement on Wednesday, June 30, and at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, July 6, Mayor Cathi Malke’s selection of Detective Mike Sievert to serve as interim chief was approved without dissent. Chief Badgley has been a member of Peshtigo Police Department for over 40 years, the last three as Chief.
Sievert’s wife, Alderman Debbie Sievert, abstained from voting on his selection as interim chief, and Alderman Brigitte Schmidt was absent. Voting in favor were Aldermen John Berendt, Rick Berth, Katie Berman and Keith Klimek.

“I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to you, the citizens of Peshtigo, a host of partners and partner agencies too numerous to name, and the employees who have traversed the ranks of the Peshtigo Police Department over the last 40 years,” Chief Badgley wrote in the resignation letter addressed to Malke. “I have been so fortunate to have had an opportunity to serve the city where I have resided for 30 years. I have had a variety of roles, beginning in March, 1982 as Patrol Officer, then promoted to sergeant and culminating with my service as Chief of Police from 2018 until today.”

Happy EMS week to all of our volunteers. If you know any members of the Emergency Rescue Squad. Please thank them for their service. They pull duty every 9 days giving up a lot of their family life, just to help others in the time of need. In addition to pulling their regular duty every 9 days a lot of them pull during the day, taking time off of work basically losing money because they care. Last year we responded to 4100 calls. We also had a record week of 78 calls. This year we had one day with a total of 28 calls. This is a new record. We wouldn't be around if we did have such a dedicated group of men and women. On behalf of the Emergency Rescue Squad, I personally would like to thank each and every one of you for dedicating part of your life to helping others.

Happy EMS week to all of our awesome volunteers!

Mary A. Woodky Obituary - Visitation & Funeral Information

Remembering Mary A.Woodky, a past member of the Emergency Rescue Squad. For over ten years Mary volunteered many hours of service caring for the sick and injured in our communities. Those that volunteered with Mary remember her for her dedication to helping others and her great sense of humor. She always had the ability to make people feel better. The members of the Emergency Rescue Squad, past and present, extend our deepest sympathy to her husband, Terry and her daughters, Melissa and Terra. And to her mother Bev Pleshek, who would make dinners for all the members of Mary’s Crew (#7)on their duty nights. And special hugs to her sister, Michelle Diamond and son Jason Diamond, who is following in his Aunt Mary’s footsteps today in the emergency medical field. Our prayers and thoughts are with all of Mary’s Family at this time. Rest In Peace Mary and Thank you for all the lives you have touched.

Share Memories & Support the Family.
