As part of their initial orientation to the city of Amery, and city government departments, the interns were given a tour of the fire station and had a conversation with Chief Darryl Christensen. He has been in the fire service for 23 years, and was appointed Amery’s 15th chief in January of 2010. The Department is a volunteer department that not only serves the City of Amery, but the surrounding townships of Alden, Black Rock, and Lincoln. One of the smallest departments around with a ladder truck, the Chief’s goal is have the best equipment and training possible for his firefighters.
The fire station is only six years old, and was built on a former rundown eyesore, brownsite, with the help of a very large donation of funds from the former owner of the site. To read about the history of the site, click on the picture of the fire station.
