Superior Fire Department Honored for Work with Kids

SUPERIOR, Wis.-Superior firefighters were honored today for all the work they do with kids.

Today there were given the Pediatric Champion of the Year award from an emergency medical services group.

In particular, they were recognized for teaching local middle school students lifesaving skills.

“Outreach is key, especially for the middle school students,” said Erica Kane of EMS for Children. She went on to say the program they had in Superior has set the benchmark for other programs like it throughout the state. The goal is to eventually take it statewide.

More than 300 students came together in January to learn all about CPR and other first aid skills, which was run by the Superior Fire Department.
