VIDEO: While full-time career firefighters are out on a call, other emergencies still need to be covered. Sometimes those are handled by volunteer or paid-on-call positions. However, area fire departments say those positions are becoming more and more difficult to retain. "Families are just too busy these days," said Assistant Chief Troy Gudie of the Onalaska Fire Department. "Husbands and wives both have careers, both have jobs... their children are busy in school and with a number of different types of programs they're involved with. The time commitment seems to be one of the hardest things with keeping paid on call."
