Casco’s Volunteer Fire Chief Bruce DePeau was honored at the 2017 Wisconsin State Fire Chief’s Association Foundation President’s dinner in Green Bay Saturday night. DePeau, who was nominated by Casco Assistant Fire Chief Duane Opicka, was notified my mail in late May that he had won the prestigious honor. DePeau was surprised and humbled by the honor and shares the most rewarding part of being a fire chief and firefighter.
DePeau has been a firefighter for 29 years and the Casco fire chief for the past 14 years. The Casco Fire Department will be purchasing a new fire engine in August and converting a rescue squad into an equipment van this summer, According to DePeau.
