Learning more about winter water sources for firefighters

At the beginning of January, WTIP spoke with Grand Marais Fire Chief Ben Silence about a program in the city of Grand Marais that asks residents to “Adopt a Fire Hydrant” by clearing the large snowbanks that may be covering them. Learn more about that program here.

But what about people who live outside of the city with no fire hydrants in sight? How do local fire departments respond in those cases? WTIP’s Rhonda Silence checked in with Lutsen Fire Department Chief Paul Goettl to learn more.
