Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht does not like seeing emergencies occur in the community, but he is trying to take away some positives from the situation. According to Hecht, first responder and fire calls are up over last year at this time, following a trend that has been consistent over the last decade. Hecht says it keeps his department busy, but it just speaks for the growing popularity of the area.
According to Hecht, their busiest times are still to come with popular weekends like Labor Day and Fall Fest on the horizon.
