Featured in the Wisconsin Fire Journal
Know as the "Oldest organized Fire Department in Wisconsin", the Sauk Fire District was featured in the January/February issue of the Wisconsin Fire Journal. Starting out by referencing the beginning back in 1854. Commenting that once the meeting started, the conversation changed over quickly to the German language readily used in the area at that time. Upon the Journal's visit they collected ideas from the history of the department.
"Firefighter Mike Wipperfurth carefully removes a stack of papers from an envelope. The edges frayed and brittle."
"The pages date back to 1854 and are minutes from the organizational meeting of a fire department for Sauk City."
Moving all the way forward to the new addition to the station built in 2006 and referencing the 40 person roster that supports the 172 square miles within the boundaries of the District.
Taking in the communities in and around the Sauk City area.
Former Chief Retires - 40 Years Gone in a Flash
Mike Fehrenbach is much more comfortable behind the camera then in front of one. Ending his 40 years of service as a paid-on-call firefighter and former Chief with the Sauk City Fire District.
Mike joined the department in 1972 and was the chief from 1993 to 2008. He was responsible for bringing in nearly $300,000 in grants to the department and spearheaded the $1.5 million expansion of the station in 2006. Many of the firefighters active today have benefitted from Mike's commitment and dedication. He will be missed, but not forgotten.
