Great Work Truck 83/Med 83 Green Shift!
Truck 83 and Med 83 - Green Shift - were on a change of quarters assigned to Wauwatosa Fire Station 51 on Monday May 22 when a Tosa resident and his three year old son came in looking to see a fire truck. Captain Eric Riechert, HEO Mark Hoffman , FF Johnny Goetz and FFPM Greg Gilles grabbed the children's sized firefighter turnout gear from the lobby of Station 51 and gave the family the grand tour. A few hours later, without knowing what had occurred, I received an email from a Wauwatosa Alderperson indicating he and his son had stopped at the fire station looking for a tour, but realized North Shore Firefighters were covering the station while the Tosa Firefighters fought a fire at the Briggs & Stratton Plant. He said our crews did a great job and represented not only North Shore Fire and Tosa Fire well, but the entire fire/ems service. Thank you Capt. Riechert and crew! - Chief Whitaker
