WISCONSIN — Many fire stations in the area are asking that people turn on their porch lights Wednesday night as a sign of hope, and to show support for those working to keep us safe.

These fire stations plan to open their bay doors and turn on the lights on their fire trucks and ambulances.

Kohler Fire Department is just one of the many departments across the state, and the country, turning their lights on in support.

They took to Facebook Wednesday asking that everyone in their community join them.

Kohler is not the only station in the area taking part in this movement. Kiel, Sheboygan, and Sun Prairie are also getting in on it.

Plus, each of these stations are starting their Facebook posts with the same words, "The doors are down. All is quiet but we stand ready!"

There are sure to be many cities taking part in this movement, so even if you don't see your city listed, you can still take part by turning on your lights.

This is a tough time for all of this and this sign of hope may be just what we need to keep our spirits up.

Stay safe, and remember, we're all in this together.
