Wood Co. firemen work to put out holiday hunger

WOOD CO. (WAOW)---Firefighters spend their time protecting others from harm. On Friday night, a group of fire fighters and paramedics in Wood County helped out in a different way.

Dozens of emergency personnel teamed up, raising close to $2,000 to buy Christmas dinners for families in need.

On Friday night, the group purchased the food and then delivered the meals to families around the area.

'In our type of business we always see people in disparity," says Don Harnisch, Nekoosa Ambulance Service Chief. "It's nice for once to see smiles on their faces when we deliver the meals."

For this group of men and women, serving is more than just fighting fires.
