Fire Chief Reiels
issues call for action
By Van Mobley
Thiensville Village President
Thiensville Fire Chief Brian Reiels has served Thiensville long and well. I agree with his assertion at the March 15 Village Board meeting that the status quo regarding the Thiensville Fire Department is untenable.
Chief Reiels' comments, when taken in conjunction with the Wisconsin Policy Forum's recently released study on Ozaukee County fire departments, helps provide impetus for action to preserve and/or reform the fire and EMS services in the Village of Thiensville.
An excellent way to improve the status of our Fire Department is to increase the number of paid-on-call volunteers who serve in its ranks. I encourage you to volunteer to serve in the Thiensville Fire Department. If you are willing and able to serve your community in this way, please click here to learn how to get started.
More also needs to be done. We will soon hold some open houses and town halls to help inform Thiensville residents about the details concerning the Thiensville Fire Department and how it may be preserved and/or transformed in the future -- as well as solicit residents' views concerning our Fire Department.
Staff is working on establishing some dates and times for these open houses and town halls. We will keep you informed.
Providing fire and EMS services is one of Thiensville's core responsibilities. It will take the focus of the entire community to ensure that our long tradition of excellent fire and EMS service continues. I am confident our community is up to the task.
