Five Wausau firefighters sworn in



Five new members of the Wausau Fire Department were sworn in today at city hall. Fire department leaders say they've been short staffed for several months, due to retirements.

They say these new recruits will bridge the gap.

"We've been running short for a while, and it makes it difficult to get done what we need to on a daily basis without proper staffing. So this will help us get back to a staffing level that helps us get work done," said Wausau Fire Battalion Chief Paul Czarapata.

The new members will start right away.
