Andy Feider honored by New Holstein Fire Department, City of New Holstein

The New Holstein Fire Department and the City of New Holstein recently recognized Andy Feider (front, left) on the occasion of his retirement after 27 years of service to the department. Feider served from 1993 to 2020 and was trained as a Firefighter I and II, driver/operator pumper, and driver/operator aerial. “Andy gave unselfishly of his time, was willing to interrupt his daily work and home life to respond at a moment’s notice to answer the call of duty, and was willing to help out wherever needed,” Mayor Jeff Hebl (front, right) said in a resolution honoring Feider, who also was a member of the Calumet County Fire Investigators and assisted with fire prevention education in local schools. Joining the mayor in the presentation were (back, from left) Second Assistant Chief Craig Carey, Chief Denis Mayer, and First Assistant Chief Jeff Beck. The resolution added that Feider shared his “talents, integrity, and wisdom” so that “the New Holstein Fire Department continues to maintain a proud tradition of excellent firefighting.” The New Holstein Common Council joined in thanking Feider for his service and leadership during his years on the department.
