This is why we talk fire safety, enforce building codes and perform fire inspections. Let’s learn from history and never let it repeat itself.

Today is the 61st anniversary of the Our Lady of the Angels School fire in Chicago, IL. On this day in 1958, 92 children and 3 nuns were killed in one of the most tragic school fires in the history of the United States. We no longer lose students in school fires because of modern building codes, sprinkler systems, fire alarms, and fire inspections. Be a supporter of modern schools to continue this trend.

To all the sailors out there, be safe and see you at winter lay up.

Today is the anniversary of the last voyage of the SS Edmund Fitzgerald

On Nov. 9, 1975, 29 men boarded the Fitzgerald in Superior, Wisconsin, and sailed toward Detroit never to be seen again. The next day, the ship was caught in a severe winter storm on Lake Superior, with near hurricane-force winds and waves more than 30-feet high. Around 7 p.m. the night of the 10th, the Fitzgerald sank taking the entire crew with her.

September 11, 2001 our world changed. 343 firefighters, 37 officers with PAPD, 23 NYPD officers, 8 EMT's and paramedics and 1 patrolman from New York Fire Patrol all said goodbye to their families for the last time. And sadly more are lost continually to 9/11 related cancers and illnesses. 445 to date between the FDNY and NYPD. Let us never forget the sacrifices made that day.

School Safety is a Shared Responsibility!

Please talk to your children and explain how important it is to SAY SOMETHING if they see or hear something. Often times young people are the first to know when something is going on with a fellow student. Most young adults are more comfortable speaking to a friend or go to social media to express themselves. SAYING SOMETHING MATTERS!

The Sturgeon Bay Police would like to remind everyone if you are planning on lighting fireworks off this weekend remember to abide by Wisconsin State Laws. A few examples of fireworks allowed are: sparklers (36 inches in length or shorter), stationary cones and fountains, toy snakes, smoke bombs, caps, noisemakers, confetti poppers with less than ¼ grain of explosive mixture and novelty devices that spin or move on the ground.

Fireworks such as: firecrackers, Roman candles, bottle rockets and mortars require permits and are illegal if you don’t have permits for them. A general rule is that if the device explodes or leaves the ground…it is illegal! If you chose to violate state law Officers can issue a citation, which is couple hundred dollars. Remember if you light fireworks off and cause damage to property or if someone is injured you could be held liable for those damages.

Remember if you choose to use consumer fireworks to celebrate this year's Fourth of July festivities, remember the following safety tips from the National Council on Fireworks Safety:

A responsible adult should supervise all fireworks activities.

Never give fireworks to young children.
Always purchase fireworks from reliable sources.

Follow label directions carefully.

Never point or throw fireworks at another person.

Use fireworks outdoors in a clear area away from buildings and vehicles.

Never carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them in metal or glass containers.

Light them one at a time then move back quickly.

Don't experiment with homemade fireworks.
Observe local laws and use common sense.

Sparklers, fountains and other items that many states allow for use by consumers are not appropriate when a large crowd is present.

If attending a community display, leave your own fireworks at home -- there will be plenty of excitement provided by the display. Be patient with the traffic when leaving the community event.

Always have a water supply near when lighting off fireworks.

Have a fun weekend and enjoy the festivities!

Words can not express the sorrow for our fallen Brother.

Today has been a difficult day. There will be many more difficult days to come, not just for our department, but for our community as well.

Today we mourn the loss of one of our own, Firefighter Mitch Lundgaard. Yesterday, at approximately 5:30pm, Appleton Police and Fire Personnel, along with Gold Cross ambulance, responded to the 100 block of E. Washington St. to assist a 47-year-old male who was arriving on a bus from out of the area. The initial report stated the male was having a medical emergency. The first responders provided initial medical assistance to the male on the bus. The male eventually left the bus and started walking towards the library. While attending to the male, believed to be from the Wausau area, the incident escalated into shots being fired.

Firefighter Lundgaard was struck by gunfire along with a female bystander, and an Appleton Police Officer. The police officer was released from the hospital earlier today. The female is in stable condition. The 47-year-old male was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

The investigation is being led by the Green Bay Police Department, with the assistance of several other state and local agencies. More information will be released on these individuals when it is available and appropriate.

A donation page has been set up to support the family of Firefighter Lundgaard. Details on how to donate will be released soon.

On Saturday March 30th Sturgeon Bay Fire department will be doing some live training in the 1300 block of N. 8th Ave. in Sturgeon Bay. The training will include some hands on interior and exterior operations followed by live burns within the home. Once our internal burn training has been completed, exterior burn training will begin until the home is gone. We seldom get opportunities like this for real fire training in a home. The homeowner has many steps to complete prior to the fire department getting the OK to complete the training by the DNR. Asbestos testing and removal along with structural stability of the home is assessed. Please understand there will be smoke and flames visible during the evolutions, Door County Dispatch, Cherryland airport, law-enforcement, and EMS have been notified and will be watching the training area. If conditions change and exterior burns cannot be completed safely It will be stopped immediately. We would ask that if you are in the area please keep traffic moving as to not cause traffic back ups. There will be a couple of small areas for spectators to watch stately and ask questions.

Press Release: Body Recovered at Cave Point

On Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at 1:00p.m. the Door County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a possible body in the waters of Lake Michigan at Cave Point County Park. Deputies responded to the area and confirmed the discovery and recovery efforts commenced.

A Department of Natural Resources warden was able to launch a boat at Baileys Harbor and responded by water. He was accompanied by firefighters from the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department. The remaining personnel responded on land. Recovery efforts were hampered by rough seas, high winds and slippery rocks. After working in arduous conditions for several hours, the body of a white male was safely recovered from the water at 4:30p.m.

The Door County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department, the Sturgeon Bay Police Department, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the Wisconsin State Patrol, the Door County Emergency Services and the Door County Joint Dive Team.

No name is being released at this time pending positive identification and notification of the next-of-kin. An autopsy is scheduled for later today.

A family is grieving the loss of a loved one. The Door County Sheriff’s Office asks that you keep this in mind before posting something that is inappropriate or insensitive.

Thank you guys for visiting the fire station!

High school and middle school Special Education students recently took a tour of the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department.

They toured the department office, sleeping and living quarters, firefighter equipment lockers and got to check out the fire trucks!

The students were excited to see that Mrs. Cihlar and Miss Wautier even had their own lockers at the station! (Mrs. Cihlar's husband and Miss Wautier's brother are on the fire department.) It was a great experience for students to learn about what the firefighters do to keep us safe.

A special thank you to Lieutenant Mike Smith and Lieutenant Ken Doell for giving such a great tour and answering all of our questions! #ClipperPride
