Milwaukee Fire Department: Engine 11

Date: September 12, 2014
"Heart Of Milwaukee" quite literally lived up to its name today as we visited Milwaukee Fire Department's Engine 11 with complimentary Friday Fish Fries to thank them for the work they do to protect our lives and property.

About a month ago former Milwaukee Alderman Jeff Pawlinski was driving by Engine 11, located on Kinnickinnic Avenue, as he was experiencing a cardiac emergency; Mr. Pawlinski knocked on the fire house door and personnel immediately sprung into action. It is thanks to the swift action of Engine 11 that Mr. Pawlinski (in suit coat) was able to stand alongside his rescuers today and thank them personally.
