VIDEO: Gregg Cleveland has fought more than fires throughout his more than 30 year career, fighting to leave every department better, than he found it. His career began in 1979 with the Menasha Fire Department after being discharged from the Marine Corps because of an injury. "I was really upset after that happened and one day my dad told me I should join the local department and I thought that sounded intriguing," Cleveland said. In 1991, he took over as Marshfield fire chief. 15 years later, he says he was looking for a new challenge and La Crosse fit the bill. "This has been the most fabulous career a person could ever have," he said. "If I were to do it all over again, I don't think I would do it any differently."
