With two of the, arguably, busiest weekends of the summer still to come, the Shootout and Labor Day, Lake Area fire districts report staying busier this year than years past. The Sunrise Beach District is no different according to Chief Dennis Reilly who says there has been little rest for the weary.
Chief Reilly goes on to say that his district remains busy all year long.
48-52 percent of calls for service in the Sunrise Beach Fire District are for actual fires, whether they are structures or natural cover fires. Chief Reilly says his district, like any other district around the Lake Area, knows that it’s not a matter of “if” but rather “when” the next call will be received.
