The South Milwaukee fireworks at Grant Park will go on as scheduled, and the city is doing its part to reduce the fire danger.
The South Milwaukee Fire Department has been watering the area near the fireworks launch zone since Wednesday, and the area, since it is well-shaded, is not “problematic,” Acting Chief Joe Knitter said in an email update today.
Additionally, the department will have a mini-pumper near the launch area that evening in case something happens.
And there will be emergency personnel on-site all day on July 4, near Brown Pavilion, to handle any heat-related or other health issues.
In related news, Oak Creek’s fireworks show will also be held as scheduled Wednesday.
