The Department

The Springstead Fire Department is dedicated to keeping our best-kept-secret Northwoods community the safe and beautiful place it is. We strive to be ready for any call we receive, fully equipped and trained, with tools at the ready.

Our department has an Engine, Tender and Brush Truck, as well as equipment for on-road extraction and ice rescue.

Our members pride ourselves on quick and efficient response to every challenge where we "take the time to do it right the first time."

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer fire fighter for the Town please contact Fire Chief Ron King [email protected] or (715) 583-9979.

Meet Our Chief

Chief Ron King has been heading the Sherman Volunteer Fire Department for over 20 years, and has grown the building and equipment into the state-of-the-art rural station it is today. He has a unique perspective, honed over years spent on the force in West Chicago. There he was a shift lieutenant, EMT, and in charge of vehicle repair and writing specifications for new apparatus.

His wealth of knowledge helps him guide the department in trainings, and he regularly shares many truisms he's picked up over his years in firefighting. Here are just a few:

"LISTEN LISTEN LISTEN, then make your move"

"We are all equal, I hate the term 'team'"

"Slow and steady. Do it right the first time, always move forward."
