La Crosse’s ‘Firefighter of the Year’ honored

La Crosse’s Fire Department is honoring their firefighter of the year.

Captain Greg Temp was honored in a ceremony Friday afternoon.

He says an early introduction to La Crosse’s fire fighters gave him a love of the job.

“When I was young my dad brought me into the fire station here in La Crosse and I got a tour from all the firefighters that were here at station one. I remember leaving thinking what a great place this was,” said La Crosse Fire Department Captain Greg Temp.

This is the 6th year the department has given the award.
