What a month, Mother nature sure sent us some strange weather in the month of June. Maybe July will get things back to normal around here. We have been very fortunate in our area for the most part and have not sustained any major damage by the winds and heavy rains.

With July here and our very important 4th of July holiday, I want everyone to be aware of the laws regarding fireworks. State law allows the sale, possession and use, without a permit, of sparklers not exceeding 36 inches in length, stationary cones and fountains, toy snakes, smoke bombs, caps, noisemakers, confetti poppers with less than ¼ grain of explosive mixture, and novelty devices that spin or move on the ground. Wis. Stat. § 167.10(1). There is no age restriction on sale, possession or use of these devices and the statute does not classify them as fireworks. Possessing or using any other fireworks, including, for example, firecrackers, roman candles, bottle rockets and mortars, in Wisconsin without a valid permit is illegal. Wis.Stat. § 167.10(3). A commonly used rule of thumb is that a permit is required if the device explodes or leaves the ground. I ask that everyone stay safe and attend a local licensed professional fireworks show and stay safe and please don't drink and drive.

 I would like to personally thank the members of our community for their assistance and understanding during the structure fire we had on June 20th in the village of Reeseville.

 Watch for flashing lights on all emergency vehicles, and remember to slow down or go around in a safe manor. They are there to keep everyone safe and alert of the situation ahead. Don’t become part of the emergency call.

The fire department is offering FREE smoke alarms which also include installation to the residents within the Reeseville fire district. Call Fire Chief Nic Gay @ 920 210-2510 for more information, and to set up an appropriate time to have yours installed! Call now because there is a limited supply available.

 What kid would not love to have a fire truck at their birthday party! We are offering to bring a fire truck and some of our very own firefighters to your house for your kid’s party! All you need to do is contact Fire Chief Nic Gay at 920 210-2510.

If you are motivated, dedicated, always willing to learn, not afraid of hard work, we have a job for you! If you have any of these qualities we are pleased to announce we are accepting applications at this time. Our Fire Department has a very good group of dedicated and highly motivated members but we could really use YOUR help. Even if you don’t like car accidents or going into fire or you are afraid of heights, we have a job for you also. There are many tasks that it takes to keep a volunteer fire department successful and we would love to have you.

For an application or even any questions or to see what goes on stop at our station on the first third or fourth Monday around 6:30 and just watch or observe.
