when Wisconsin works the phone call comes from Melrose Park

This is a feel good AP story.
Employees at the Chippewa Falls facility had already headed home Sept. 3 when the call came in that customer Fisher Safety was in need of an emergency shipment of floating pumps to pump water from low lying areas. The facility had just one pump in stock.

But Darley vice president and COO Paul Darley - at the company headquarters in Melrose Park, Ill. - wasn't ready to give up.

He said he gave Chippewa Falls plant manager Gene Normand a call and he came back to work. Normand then assembled their 11 employees, even though it was a holiday weekend. (emphasis added, if you couldn't guess)
