FIRE PREVENTION WEEK this year is October 5-11, 2014. The 16th Annual Poster-to-Billboard Contest which is sponsored by the Milwaukee Fire Department. The topic this year will be: Working Smoke Detectors Save Lives This contest is open to all City of Milwaukee elementary and middle school students. Posters will be accepted from Monday, September 8 through Monday, September 29, 2014.
This 2013 annual report will highlight statistics in typical categories such as response types and times,
drilled-down budget figures, appointments and promotions, as well as provide a little background and
“what goes on” in the five battalions, special (team) operations, and in our divisions, working hard behind
the scenes. These statistics and stories are the framework of the MFD; the culmination of the dedicated
front-line and behind-the-scenes work performed by our members. They will give the reader a brief
glimpse into the everyday challenges and responsibilities the men and women of the department
undertake with skill, compassion, and professionalism.
Warm Up Winter helps the Milwaukee Fire Department purchase brand new, American-made coats for the children who need them most. Working with MPS over the past three years to determine those in greatest need, we have successfully provided new coats to 11 complete elementary schools to date.
