Beaver Dam Fire Department Recognized For Efforts During 2018’s Third Street Fire

(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Fire Department was recently honored by a leading trade journal in the United State fire industry. For their efforts during 2018’s fatal fire at the Executive Apartment on 3rd Street, the department was ranked third by their peers in unit citations in the country by Firehouse Magazine. Chief Alan Mannel says the recognition speaks volumes to the abilities of their small city Wisconsin fire department. During a recent Police and Fire Commission Meeting Mannel credited his firefighters work and so did PFC Chairman Jeff Kohman. Mannel says there were many acts of heroism and leadership described in the Firehouse Magazine article. He also thanked neighbors who assisted during the fire, adding that he is (quote) “one proud chief.”
