Northwoods Fire Departments Get Donation
RHINELANDER - When you think of the fire fighters, you probably think of them helping you.

But a group of gracious women did exactly the opposite for a couple of local fire departments.

The General Federation of Womens Club donated Pediatric Jump Kits Bags for different fire departments.

The jump kits are equipped with first aid essentials.

They've sent them to Pine Lake and Newbold Fire Department.

The women will now start working with Crescent and Pelican first responding fire departments.
