It appears the Windom Fire Department needs a few more good people.
That was the message Fire Chief Ben Derickson delivered to the Windom City Council recently. Derickson said he planned to advertise in the Citizen and Shopper to add firefighters.
Resignations and retirements have been a big factor lately, according to Derickson. Typically, he likes to have 32 firefighters and that number has dropped to 28.
Derickson was granted permission from the council to seek four or five firefighters.
