The Coon Creek Fire Commission has provided rescue services to the towns of Coon, Washington and Hamburg, and village Chaseburg, since 1947, with Coon Valley joining in 1989. Originally it was known as the Coon Creek Fire Fighting Association before changing the name in 2015. “In 1971, the four municipalities signed an agreement to officially become the Coon Creek Fire Fighting Association,” Orlan Bakkum, president of the Coon Creek Fire Commission, said. The commission, along with the village of Coon Valley, was able to provide equipment to the Coon Valley Fire Department to be used to serve the five municipalities.
