CASCO FIRE DEPARTMENT

The Casco Volunteer Fire Department is located at 211 First Street in the Village of Casco. The Casco Fire Department is made up of 26 volunteers. The 26 volunteers are "on call" 24 hours a day when they are within a reasonable responding distance from the fire station. You have to be a dedicated individual to be a member of the Casco Fire Department. You have to be willing to give of your time to attend meetings, drills, schooling, and the fire calls. Sixty hours of firefighter schooling is required to become an active fireman. The average cost to the fire department to fully equip a volunteer with a pager and the needed firefighting gear is about $2,500.

The Casco Fire Department has three emergency vehicles. The first is a 2000 International pumper which contains 1,600 gallons of water and is able to pump 1,000 gallons per minute. The second vehicle is a 1985 pumper containing 1,000 gallons of water and can also pump 1,000 gallons per minute. The third vehicle is a converted rescue squad which is used as an equipment van to carry fire equipment as well as firemen.

The Casco Fire Department's Insurance Services Organization fire rating is a class 6 which helps to keep homeowners and business insurance rates low. This rating is very good considering there isn't a municipal water system in the village. The Casco Fire Department's primary response area is the Village of Casco, however the Casco Fire Department also provides automatic mutual aid and mutual aid with every fire department in Kewaunee County as well as some in Door and Brown Counties.

The Casco Fire Department relies on fund raisers throughout the year to raise money to purchase new firefighting equipment. The fire department holds its annual cookout/raffle/milk bottle tournament on the first Saturday of October at the fire station. There are also very generous businesses that sponsor fund raisers for the fire department such as BMO Harris Bank and Avon Representative Debbie Haumschild. The Casco Fire Department is very appreciative of these businesses as well as the people that support the fund raisers!

The Casco Fire Department officers include Fire Chief Bruce DePeau, first Assistant Fire Chief Duane Opicka, second Assistant Fire Chief Troy Alsteen, and Captain Dan Laak.
