On Saturday, the Eagle Point Volunteer Fire Department in Chippewa Falls held an open house to show their support for their community. The Eagle Point Volunteer Fire Department is comprised of 22 individuals consisting of EMRs, EMTs, first responders and volunteer fire fighters. Most fire departments located in less populated areas are staffed by mostly volunteers and many of the staffers are on call 24/7. Chippewa Falls resident Cathy Reinhart said she is thankful to have a group of firefighters around in case the community needs them. “I really appreciate their willingness to put themselves in harm’s way for us,” Reinhart said. “It’s hard for people to imagine what some of these people have to go through when something happens. Getting to be here and see what all goes into it is something I’ll remember and will help me appreciate even more the service the workers here provide every day.”
