As the City of Waukee continues to enjoy steady growth, public safety staff must also expand in order to serve the growing population. The Waukee Fire Department is proud to announce two staff advancements.
Waukee Firefighter Tony Clemen (right) was hired as a full-time Lieutenant on Tuesday, May 17. Clemen is a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa and the Mercy College of Health Sciences.
