Some of Northeast Wisconsin's fire departments aren't just working to put out a blaze. In Two Rivers, the firefighters are tasked with anything from performing water rescues to helping those in need of medical support. "Everyone’s a paramedic," Assistant Chief David Murack said. "Everyone’s a firefighter." Members of the Two Rivers Fire Department wear dozens of hats on a daily basis. "A number of smaller departments are cross-staffed, because they have to be," Murack said.
