The relationship between Gibraltar School District and the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department is something both sides equally benefit. For the school district, all staff members were able to participate in CPR training with help from instructors at the fire department, while the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department has been able to have positive encounters with students, recruiting a couple volunteers in the process. Fire Chief Chris Hecht says partnering with the local schools is something all volunteer fire departments can appreciate.
Hecht commended the several Gibraltar students who worked hard to address their graduation requirements so they could spend their afternoon at the station for what amounts to be an internship in firefighting.
