Family donates to Waukon Fire Department in memory of Dennis "Borgie" Bahr

The family of Dennis "Borgie" Bahr recently donated $1,000 to the Waukon Fire Department in memory of Borgie to help the department purchase a new Rescue Randy Manikin (pictured below adorned in old firefighter gear for protection and preservation). Used by the department for training in various rescue situations, the manikin weighs 170 pounds and has lifelike arms and legs that bend just like a real human body to help give the firefighters the true feeling of maneuvering an individual in a rescue situation. This Rescue Randy Manikin will replace the department's old manikin that is 30-plus years old and showing signs of wear and tear that required replacement. Waukon Fire Chief Dave Martin says Borgie and the Bahr family have been very supportive of the fire department and the community, and this donation is greatly appreciated. Pictured at top at the donation presentation are, left to right, Dave Bahr of Waukon, brother of Borgie Bahr, presenting the donation check to Waukon Fire Chief Dave Martin. Submitted photos.
