The Wautoma Fire Department is the lucky recipient of a grant from the Community Foundation of Wisconsin. The grant allowed the department to purchase white helmets for the Chief and Assistant Chiefs. The purpose of the white helmet is to allow anyone on scene to quickly identify the officers in charge, which allows for a safe fireground. The second grant the department received was from the WE Energies Foundation Rewarding First Responders. That grant was for a 4 gas meter. Prior to receiving this grant, the department did not have a way to identify what or how much gas was leaking. With the new meter the Wautoma Fire Dept. is able to identify four different gases: Oxygen, Hydrogen sulfide, Carbon monoxide and Lower Explosive Levels (LEL) of a variety of combustible gases.
