    Default Former Fire Chief and Wisconsin Fire Service Legend passes away

    A long time local legend in the fire service in Wisconsin passed away Saturday May 1st, 2010. He was a leader of the fire service in the west central area of the state by starting the firefighter training program at the Chippewa Valley Technical College in 1973 as well as a former fire chief of Altoona, WI Fire Department, Assistant Chief of Township Fire Department, Inc. in Eau Claire, WI.

    I personally knew him growing up with him and my father being on the Township Fire Department and Merl has personally taught fire classes to thousands of firefighters statewide. His leadership, dedication, and guidance has made the fire service in this area what it is today.

    Rest in Peace Merl, we will take it from here.

    family is in my prayers, the mourning band has been placed over my badge.
    Firefighters need not fear fire, but give it all their respect.
