Safety Officers


The WCFD is excited to announce the addition of Safety Officers to our Command Staff. The Safety Officer's primary role is to ensure the health and well-being of all firefighters acting on behalf of the WCFD. The group works both on and off the fire-ground to accomplish their many goals.

The current Safety Officer are Don Herb (51), Mike Cotter (52) and Martin Helmke (53). These gentlemen all have a tremendous amount of experience and all possess higher education degrees, which will aid them in the development of programs & strategies to ensure "everyone goes home." Their radio designations are Safety 51, Safety 52 and Safety 53.
