FDL Fire Dept Brat Fry For Red Cross A Success

One of the reasons Fond du Lac firefighters are happy to do their annual brat fry for the Red Cross is because of the help the Red Cross gives them at fire scenes. Ironically as Fire Chief Peter O’Leary was presenting Red Cross officials with a check from the proceeds of last Friday’s brat fry the fire department got a call for a fire at an apartment building. O’Leary quipped, “Who knows the Red Cross may have to help on this one too.” The words proved prophetic as the Red Cross did have to help out residents of the apartment complex. As for the check presentation it was for $4,006.38. Chief O’Leary says the firefighters and the public made that happen. He says the firefighters of Local 400 worked hard to make the brat fry a success and although no official records are kept last weekend’s effort might be a record total for the annual brat fry.
