Give the South Milwaukee Fire Department an assist on the big Riverwest fire on Tuesday in Milwaukee.
Learn more about the fire in this Milwaukee Journal Sentinel story.
And here is the email from Acting South Milwaukee Fire Chief Joe Knitter …
Milwaukee Fire Dept. requested a MABAS (Mutual Aid Box Alarm System) Level One Box Alarm which took our engine to a Milwaukee fire station on Holton and Keefe to handle calls in that response area. While there, our engine responded to three EMS calls and a fire call. This is the third time in history that SMFD has responded to the City of Milwaukee as the result of a MABAS Alarm and, ironically, Capt. Czajkowski has been the Shift Officer on all three responses!!
