Congratulations to our four local firefighters, Trent Whipple, Tyler Oberender, Ryan Peterson and Brian Watson, who for the seventh time, brought home the winning trophy for the “Fight for Air” climb, which also raised funds for the American Lung Association.


Your community is very proud of you firefighters, not only for your long hours of training for this event (wearing full firefighters’ gear and air tanks) but your 24/7 service and dedication to our Story City community and Lafayette Township.


We are lucky to have such young and dedicated people serving as volunteer firefighters and first responders. Please, when you see any of our firefighters or first responders, shake their hand, thank them for their service and tell them how much they are appreciated.


Sincerely,


Mayor Mike Jensen
