Hello to our great Green Bay Metro community,
As you may have read in the Green Bay Press Gazette, or seen news coverage of our ruling regarding the Hook & Ladder program, the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission has delivered a ruling in favor of the City of Green Bay. I think providing some information into what that means is appropriate and I will try to keep it short.
High-rise building fires are a matter of life and death. And as local governments and municipalities struggle with public safety budgets, a new study led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) shows that communities considering cutting fire fighter crew sizes need to take a second look.

In an act of generosity not seen before, the 2011 Recruit Class of the Green Bay Fire Department made a donation of $500 towards the annual up-dating and maintenance of the Green Bay Fire Fighter Tribute Foundation.
The Green Bay Fire Fighter Tribute Foundation has available for purchase photo reprints of members of the Green Bay Fire Department from the early 1950's. Each photo is an 8x10 black an white suitable for framing. A listing of all members in the photos is inicluded. Cost for each photo is $5.00.
On Tuesday, November 9th, the addition of 47 new bricks at the Green Bay Fire Fighter Tribute took place bringing the total number of individuals curren tly recognized at teh Tribute to over 450. Included in those numbers are the most recent individuals who have left the Green Bay Fire Department since 2009.
