HAYS, Kan. (KWCH) "It's a task no department ever wants to take on, but it is an honor to help out our brothers and sisters," the Hays Fire Department posted to Facebook on Thursday.
The fire department says it sent an engine and three firefighters to cover calls for the City of Plainville during the funerals of Retired Chief Keith Mongeau and Retired Assistant Chief Bob Wise.
The covering firefighters allowed the Plainville Fire Department to attend the funerals without the worry of being interrupted by calls.
"The Hays Fire Department sends our deepest sympathies to the families and friends of Chief Mongeau and Asst. Chief Wise."
