Almost a year after heavy rain caused flash flooding in several areas of Monroe County, the crew at Fort McCoy Fire Department reflects on their service to the community during routine equipment checks at FMFD Station One on Aug. 12, 2019. The department operates two fire stations that serve the 60,000 acre Army installation and its surrounding cities through various firefighting and emergency capabilities. Cole Stanek, a firefighter at Station One, said while many fire departments just respond to structure fire calls, their mission on Fort McCoy allows them to play a larger role. “We'll respond to regular structural fires, any other fires like grass fires on the ranges and carbon monoxide alarms … we're also EMS (emergency medical services),” said Stanek.
