The Appleton Fire Department dedicated a new bell to the department.
According to Captain Jeff Nelessen, the ringing of a bell has long been a symbol associated with the life of a firefighter.
The original bell was given to a local school many years ago. Recently, a replica of the bell was cast and painted to be housed at Fire Station No.1.
Thanks to the support of community members, including Bergstrom Automotive, Miron Construction, De Pere Foundry and Profile Finishing Systems, the project was made possible.
