The City of Mequon Fire Department is proud to announce that for a short period of time The City of Mequon Fire Department will be loaning our neighboring agency The Village of Thiensville Fire Department one of our two ladder trucks to operate while the TFD ladder truck is out of the village for service. The Mequon and Thiensville Fire Departments have a long history of working cooperatively dating back to 1933 when the Town of Mequon decided to form their own fire department. Previous to that, the Town of Mequon was served by the Thiensville Fire Department from their inception in 1851.

In fact, what’s old is new again. TFD history documents that in 1918 the Mequon Town Board provided TFD with a $1,000 contribution towards TFD’s purchase of a new “motor fire engine”. In 1920 the new self-propelled Luverne pumper engine arrived at TFD and replaced the previously horse drawn engine. The Luverne pumper engine provided protection to both Thiensville and the Town of Mequon. In 1933 just months after the Town of Mequon Fire Department was organized an Mutual Aid agreement was signed between MFD and TFD and ultimately in some form or another both agencies have worked together ever since.

When the MFD became aware that TFD would be without their ladder truck for approximately four weeks, a discussion took place between department officers as to how to best ensure that both agencies would be able to compensate for the loss of the TFD ladder truck for that amount of time.

For any working fire in the City of Mequon, MFD normally asks TFD to respond with their ladder truck and MFD focus on getting our engines to the scene knowing TFD will provide the first due ladder truck. Without TFD having a ladder truck available both MFD and TFD would be at a disadvantage in the event of a fire. The equipment and capabilities provided by a ladder truck are essential at the scene of a fire and should be on scene in as short a time as possible.

MFD is unique in Ozaukee County, because MFD is the only Fire Department to have two ladder trucks
in our fleet due to the size of our City. But like other Fire Departments in Ozaukee County, staffing the
equipment that we all have is proving to be a significant challenge. To ensure the safety and protection of Mequon residents and property loaning TFD one of our ladder trucks makes tactical sense and is a perfect example of the “Can Do” attitudes of both fire departments. With TFD able to respond with a ladder truck to any fire incident within Mequon, the MFD fire suppression operations will remain status quo for both MFD and TFD.

This short-term loan of equipment between departments is a prime example of how our two agencies and communities can work together to support each other and ultimately strengthen our abilities to provide efficient public safety to our citizens. By taking the positive and optimistic approach of figuring out how to make this agreement work despite the hurdles we have shown our two communities and fire departments can set the example for interagency cooperation within the County.

The legal and indemnification details are all codified in a simple and straight forward inter-agency loan agreement that has been previously employed in the inter-agency loan of other EMS equipment and vehicles between other agencies.

The Mequon Fire Department joins the Thiensville Fire Department in mourning the loss of a member that contributed significantly to both of our organizations and the community at large. After his time with TFD Jim Rosenberg served with Mequon Fire from 1991 to 2004 rising to the rank of Assistant Chief with MFD in 1998 and serving as such until his retirement in 2004. Our sincere condolences to those impacted by this loss and our gratitude for his time and dedication to MFD.

It was an awesome morning here at Mequon Fire, DC Zellmann had the honor of leading the annual Lac Du Cours bicycle parade through the subdivision and to the community club house. It was fun to share the honor along with the Mequon Police Department Officer Bottoni and K-9 Djuke! DC Zellmann had the opportunity to meet many community members and show off the firefighting equipment kept on Quint 961. It’s always fun to get to put on our gear and share a message of safety and fire prevention with the kids! Thanks again for the invitation!

The Mequon Fire Department is not only responsible for mitigating EMS and Fire emergencies within the 48 square miles of the City of Mequon, Wisconsin we are also responsible for inspecting every commercial building, business, church and school in the city as well to ensure the safety of all occupants and property. MFD also ensures that the fire protection systems within these buildings are fully operating and installed correctly. It’s a big job that’s gotten bigger lately thanks to the growth of the city. Today DC Zellmann had the pleasure of working with the professionals from @Systec Ltd of WI and Aldridge Electric, Inc. Inspecting the new fire alarm system installed at Steffen Middle School. This inspection consisted of testing the functions of every single detector and alarm device and the overall operation of the alarm panel. It took just over two and a half hours to complete. I am happy to report that there was not a single malfunction found. The system worked perfectly the first time through. The system has well over 150 components throughout the building. It’s rare that such a complex system works the first time! Well done Mequon-Thiensville School District for selecting professionals like these gentlemen to work on this building and to do such a terrific job! They all took to heart the importance of what this alarm system protects. Our communities children. As a Volunteer Fire Department the importance of fire prevention systems can’t be overstated. A big thanks as well to MTSD head of Ground Mr. Kyle Thompson for his focus on safety! You have been a wonderful partner in working with MFD!

At 5:15pm this evening the Volunteers of your Mequon Fire Department were simultaneously requested to two different calls at one time. The first call was for an individual suffering a medical emergency with an altered level of consciousness at a local manufacturing facility. The second call was for a 3 car accident with multiple significant injuries at the intersection of Donges Bay Rd and Wauwatosa Rd. A MFD first responder unit was sent to the first medical call and the Thiensville Fire Department was requested mutual aid for a transporting ALS unit. A second MFD first responder unit staffed by Battalion 9 responded to the scene of the car accident. Upon arrival, Battalion 9 was confronted with multiple patients with significant injuries. As a result of the number of injuries Bat 9 requested 3 additional ALS units. One from Village of Grafton Fire Department one ALS unit from Germantown Wisconsin Fire Department and a second ALS unit from Thiensville. Additionally, MFD provided 3 Ambulances and an Engine to assist with crash cleanup. In total, 3 patients were transported to 3 area hospitals and 3 individuals had injuries treated on scene and denied transport to a hospital. Thanks to Mequon Police Department for their assistance on scene and to Gierach's Service for towing the damaged vehicle and assisting with re-opening the road ASAP.
