"Coldsprings-Excelsior Fire Department is saddened by the loss of our Assistant Chief Will Wiita from a sudden and unexpected death. Will was one of the few people in this world that helped everyone, never complained, and brought laughter and joy into many of our families at Station 6. He was a best friend to many and was called Uncle Will by every kid on the department for the last 12+ years. Will is remembered with unending dedication to the people of this community"

Cleaning up your yard this weekend? Please note that fire danger is VERY HIGH in some parts of the northern Lower Peninsula and Upper Peninsula.

Before burning, please check for conditions in northern Michigan and to obtain a permit online if they are being issued. In the southern Lower Peninsula, contact the local unit of government or fire department to obtain a permit.
