Yesterday Company 2 worked with some of our new members on how to extinguish and manage a woodland fire. Conditions normally do not allow for us to train on this subject in December. Thank you to the Mukwonago Area School District for allowing us to burn some of their property and also help them at the same time.

Dangers of Turkey Fryers

Are you planning to deep fry your Turkey? Better start defrosting it now! You wouldn’t want uninvited Firefighters having to show up at your house to extinguish the flames!

For extra credit: what should you use to extinguish grease or oil fires?

Here is a reminder to start thawing your turkey this weekend if you plan to deep fry it next Thursday for Thanksgiving! Turkeys can take up to four days to defrost and you want zero ice when deep drying one.

Follow these other safety tips to prevent a holiday disaster.

- Defrost the turkey completely. Any ice can lead to a massive fireball as it instantly boils off in the hot oil.
- Premeasure the amount of oil by filling the pot with water and placing the bird in it. Then mark remove the bird and mark the pot with masking tape where the oil level should be. This prevents spilling hot oil over when putting in the bird.
- Never fry a turkey in a garage or on a deck. Use a driveway or a spot in the yard. Keep 10 feet separation from the fryer and the house or anything combustible.
- Lower the bird slowly to reduce hot oil splashing out of the pot.
- Turn the gas off when putting in the bird. This prevents any oil that does splash out from catching fire.

For examples of what can go wrong, please watch this video from National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

NFPA joins CPSC to demonstrate the fire dangers of turkey fryers in this live burn. NFPA strongly discourages the use of turkey fryers. For more safety tips ...

Update: here is a link to the obituary: https://www.schmidtandbartelt.com/obituaries/detail.aspx?id=14234

It is with deep sadness that we share with the Mukwonago community the passing of longtime community member and Retired Assistant Chief Fred Purdy. Fred passed away yesterday Sunday 11-8-20. Our deepest sympathy goes to his wife Judee, son Scott, daughter Trisha, and all his other family and friends.

Fred was a true leader for all that knew him. Fred had a forward vision to see the Fire Department and the people around him succeed. Fred never stopped giving back to his community through service. After a short retirement, Fred came back to MFD to help the department move forward again and was the Acting Fire Chief in 2011.

Fred always looked for the good in people and helped them succeed. Fred took so many people under his wing and helped them grow and we are all better for that. Fred's proudest moment I would have to think, was when he was able to work with his son Scott in the fire service in Mukwonago. Father helping his son grow as a firefighter.

Rest in Peace Fred Purdy, know that we are better people for what you have shared with each of us on this earth.

The Mukwonago Fire Department responded to a single vehicle rollover involving a tree at 03:29 this morning. The car was occupied by 1 female driver. Information passed onto our department by dispatch at the time of the call was that the incident happened over an hour ago and someone had stopped when they saw the car in the ditch. The accident happened on south bound Hwy E just south of Westgate Dr. in the Town of Mukwonago.

When MFD arrived we assessed the vehicle and the driver. She stated she was able to move but could not get out of the vehicle. MFD was able to break the sun roof glass and bring the driver out of the car safely. The driver was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries.

2 lessons to pass on with this accident.

Please be cautious driving at night especially now that deer are more active. This accident happened because a deer ran in front of the car causing the driver to swerve away from the deer.

Also the driver could not find her cell phone after the car rolled over. Lucky someone saw her car at 3:25 in the morning and was able to call for help. Consider keeping your cellphone in the middle compartment of your car or in your pocket when driving. This way you will have it when you need it.

Thank you again to the passer by that called 911. Be safe out there Mukwonago. Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicle @ Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

May we all come together, and Never Forget.

On this day... 19 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.

DID YOU KNOW… Traffic Interrupters can automatically change traffic lights to stop traffic to allow emergency vehicles a clear, safe path through busy intersections? Receptor units at the intersection receive signals from boxes mounted on emergency vehicles, providing them a green light through the intersection. Interrupters shorten response times, enhance safety for all…..and reduce potentially serious claims on our auto insurance.

Mukwonago Chief Stien and Chief Schmidt took time today to show me how they will work at the intersection of Hwy 83 and NN – interrupters cost $9600/intersection plus $500/vehicle to install. As a Mukwonago insurance agency keeping over 750 families locally in Good Hands, it just makes good sense for us to contribute to something that cuts down on claims and keeps us all a little safer. The Village of Mukwonago Police Department

If you’d like information on how to contribute to the installation of traffic interrupters in Mukwonago, contact Chief Stien 262-363-6426 or Chief Schmidt at 262-363-6434.

Burn camp is always one of our favorite events every year! We wish we could’ve gone to actual camp, but we were excited to be able to do a mini-parade for one of our local campers. Thanks to Vernon Fire Department Village of Waukesha Fire Department for helping us out!

The Vernon Fire Department, Mukwonago Fire Department, and Village of Waukesha Fire Department had the opportunity to put on a mini parade for a local Burn Camp camper this morning! Due to COVID-19 burn camp is not going on this year but many local departments participated in events like this to bring the fire truck parade to the campers! Thanks to all who assisted!

More road work to be aware of!

The rehabilitation of the CTH ES bridge over the Fox River has begun. Construction is scheduled through mid-November. One travel lane will remain open across the bridge. There are temporary traffic signals on each side of the bridge. The speed limit has also been reduced to 25 mph in the construction zone. Drivers should expect delay while going through the construction zone, so plan accordingly. The canoe and boat access to the Fox River at the bridge will be closed during the project.

Some great reminders!

Today is National Pet Fire Safety Day. Today reminds us to consider our pets when planning fire routes and safety in our homes! 🧯🚒🔥
PET FIRE SAFETY TIPS (See more below):
-Store leashes and collars near the entrance of your home. When away, have your pets in the main living area for easy rescue.
-Secure young pets when away from home. This can help avoid fire hazards.
-Fire alert window clings help firefighters identifying the room your pets are located and identify the number of pets in the home. Add one to the window of the room you keep your pets when you are away. Keep it updated with the number of pets residing with you and your current phone number.
Have a plan when you are home. Know which family members will be responsible for each pet.

CTH LO SEWER REHAB PROJECT

On July 16, 2020, work will be beginning on the replacement of sewer lines on CTH LO between STH 83 & Gibson Street. CTH LO WILL BE CLOSED BETWEEN STH 83 AND GIBSON STREET. The detour route will be CTH NN and I, similar to our detour route for some of the parades. It will only be for about a month, as they plan on having the project substantially completed by August 14, 2020. Waukesha County will be redoing CTH LO. The county will be grinding the old pavement off and repaving LO. They have not given us the exact date yet.

WITH CTH LO CLOSED, only residents who live in the construction section are allowed to be in there.

When my hubby was returning to his truck while on a call today he said a lady was by his door. She turned and had just placed this lil guy on his handle. She said despite everything going on today we are still appreciated and loved. There are still good people in this world and yes he cried a little! Thank you and I hope more of this love spreads.
The Milwaukee Fire Honor Guard, INC. Honors your page! Thank you for all you do! If you need anything lets us know by going to our page!
Took this picture late this afternoon. I believe the tanker was en route to the fire producing the smoke in the picture background. Thanks for your service!
The Best!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On September 1 these men working at Engineered Pump Services were heroes. Our loved one was at their facility unloading his semi and suffered sudden cardiac arrest. These men (plus another who was not present when we visited) jumped in and immediately started CPR and placed an AED on him, called EMS and saved a life. Our loved one is still in the hospital and will need some time to recover but he has zero mental deficits and these men right here along with EMS are the only reason we didn't lose him. We are forever grateful. Thank you to everyone who has played a role in this miracle.
Thank you for hosting the Business After 5 event tonight. I learned a lot and my daughter loved seeing all the trucks!
Thank you for coming out to the Orchards subdivision for our 4th of July party! Kids loved the bike parade behind the fire truck and the water balloon toss!
The Orchards enjoyed watching our local fire department hard at work! This is a controlled fire for training purposes:) Thank you!
Thank you to the Mukwonago fire department for coming 4 years in a row to our subdivision for our own little 4th of July parade. The kids talk about it year round and look forward to it. THANK YOU!!!! #theorchardslovesmfd!
