Beaver Dam PFC Praises Departments Response To Apartment Explosion

(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Police and Fire Commission held their regular monthly meeting Tuesday night, one day after the deadly explosion at the Village Glen Apartments. Commission Chair Jeff Kohman and Mayor Becky Glewen each took a moment to thank both departments for their roles in the situation. Glewen called the response fantastic and the departments services outstanding. Kohman says they handled a scary situation very well. Fire Chief Alan Mannel called it a significant incident that is probably going to go on for several more days and may prove to be one of the biggest incidents the department has responded to. He could not comment on the particulars but noted that the facts will eventually come to light. Mannel says he is very proud of both his personnel and the police department.
