3/8/17 – The Beaver Dam Police and Fire Commission last night accepted the resignation of the volunteer chaplain for the police and fire departments. Pastor Mark Jensen was with Beaver Dam’s First Lutheran Church before being reassigned this month to a church in Pennsylvania. Fire Chief Alan Mannel says Jensen will be missed. The departments are in the process of finding a new chaplain and the chiefs already have a couple leads. The chaplain assists emergency responders as needed when notification is given to a family in the death of a loved one or as they navigate through the difficulties of the job.
