A Merrill Battalion Chief, Mike Drury, is walking out of the Fire Department doors after 35 years of service on December 8. Drury has delivered three babies, worked during a tornado, saved the driver of a semi-truck rollover, battled a huge building fire and much more. But, his friends insisted he talk about his helmet modeling days. "The Antigo firefighters and Merill firefighters saw the news coverage at 5, 6 and 10 that night with my helmet kind of crooked and made a brochure and then made a clip-on for the front of my helmet that had a level on it to make sure my helmet was level when I got interviewed," Drury said, laughing. Drury said he is looking forward to spending more time with his family.
