The owners of Oak Ridge Inn and Campground in Webb Lake, Wisc., and their staff,  have been organizing funding for the Webb Lake Area First Responders for the last couple of years.

According to the Burnett County Sentinel, this year alone they have raised $14,200 in donations for the group.

Steve Austin and his wife Julie own the campground. When Steve met Marie Bernatz, treasurer of the Webb Lake Area First Responders, a few years ago, they began a relationship that has kept the Webb Lake area safe during medical emergencies.

“For the last three years, at least, they’ve essentially been our bank,” Bernatz said. “These people have kept our group going and without this money we would have folded.”
