It was December 6, 1965, when Roger Sadlo joined the Browerville Volunteer Fire Department. “At that time fire fighting gear was pretty much rubber raincoats and plastic helmets that melted,” recalled Roger. In 1965 the fire department had a 1934 Chevrolet fire truck that did not have a cab, just a windshield. They did not own a tanker truck and had to rely on North Star Dairy to provide a bulk milk truck to haul water. Roger retired after 30 years of service with the department.
