(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Fire Department is highlighting the promotion of two of their firefighters.
Firefighter Nick Smith has been promoted to the rank of lieutenant. Smith began his fire service career alongside his father with the Beaver Dam Fire Department in 2007. He holds a state certification as a fire officer and recently completed his requirements to be certified as an emergency services instructor. Smith also serves on the recruitment and retention committee and is involved in the annual food drive for many years.
Firefighter Kyle Nehr was also promoted to the rank of lieutenant. Nehr began his career with the Beaver Dam department as a cadet and was immediately hired as paid-on-call once turning 18. In the nine years since, he has served on the recruitment and retention committee and has been a mentor to new paid-on-call firefighters. Nehr also has his fire officer state certification and is a certified emergency services instructor.
Both began their new roles on Tuesday. A swearing-in ceremony will be held on November 4th at 6:30pm.
