The Onalaska Fire Department has a full roster after two new firefighter/emergency medical technicians joined the force in October. The new emergency personnel were presented to the Onalaska Common Council at its Nov. 13 meeting. Onalaska Fire Chief Billy D. Hayes introduced firefighter/EMT Jordan Hensler who comes to the department from Waterloo, and firefighter/EMT Mitch Schulte is from French Island. “One of the greatest honors of my position is to afford the opportunity for individuals to begin their career in this great profession,” Hayes said. “The two new members filled the existing vacancies bringing the fire department back to full staffing.” Hayes also introduced firefighter/EMT Austin Manglitz of Onalaska, who was sworn in as a part-time responder after he completed a one-year probation period.
