Michigan Firefighters Pull Driver From Lake

The uniformed firefighters were getting ready to go door-to-door in the area to let people know about the upcoming fire millage request.

McCarthy said they were unable to get back to passing out millage brochures and talking to neighbors because they were on the scene until around 9 p.m.

On Nov. 2, voters will be asked to approve a 0.9-mill property-tax increase for a new fire station and to have that station staffed with one firefighter round-the-clock.

The WLFA wants to buy a 4-acre parcel in the city's industrial park to build a modern station that would accommodate the larger trucks firefighters use today and additional equipment.
