Fond du Lac Fire Rescue unveiled their new effort to help the homeless Wednesday.

The Department will provide sleeping bags for the homeless. They'll have them on hand for paramedics to distribute while they're out in the community.

Fire Chief Peter O'Leary says, "this program we hope will keep those people warmer, we don't know what all the circumstances are, we don't tend to ask a lot of questions and the people that suffer from being homeless isn't something that they like to do."

The sleeping bags were donated courtesy of Target and Agnesian Health Care.
