Awards For Eau Claire!
WRITTEN BY Nils Mowlem
Last week, Jeff Dykes of Northern Star Fire Corporation in Eau Claire won the Governor's Business Plan Contest at the Wisconsin Entrepreneurs Conference in Madison. Northern Star Fire created a compass that imbeds on a firefighter's face mask to determine which direction they're facing in low-visibility environments. This product is designed for added safety to firefighters.
Business in Eau Claire has been gaining more recognition with two major recent awards: Jeff Dykes winning the Governor's Business Contest and earlier with Zach Halmstad receiving the "Seize the Day" award.
