WEYERHAEUSER, Wis., (WEAU) A fundraiser is being held June 17 to help fund the joining of the Emergency Response Teams of the Barron and Rusk County Sheriff's Departments.
Rusk County Sheriff's Office Deputy Dan Glaze was tragically killed in the line of duty on 10/29/2016. During this incident, the Barron County Sheriff's Office Emergency Response Team assisted the Rusk County Sheriff's Office, as is often the case with high risk situations in Rusk County.
Rusk County and Barron County have since worked together to place five Rusk County Sheriff's Office Deputies and Investigators on the Barron County Emergency Response Team. This joint team will serve both Barron and Rusk Counties.
This addition comes with a large expense for both training and equipment.
As a result, a fundraiser is being held on June 17, 2017 at the Weyerhaeuser Park and Pavilion in Weyerhaeuser, WI.
