Local Heroes: Well-Deserved Honors for South Milwaukee Firefighters

A couple excerpts from the South Milwaukee Fire Department Facebook page

First, an honor last week for Chief Joe Knitter …

Humbled to be one of the recipients of the Unsung Heroes Award presented by the FBI Milwaukee Citizens Academy Alumni Association at tonight’s awards program. And a HUGE THANK YOU goes out to Theresa Kent and the Association for an incredibly generous $3,500 donation to the SMFD for the purchase of protective equipment for our cancer awareness and prevention program. A great organization and a great event.

And this from May, recognizing more of the team …

Congratulations to the members of the SMFD who were recognized by Aurora Health Care as part of their Annual EMS Week Recognition event. Two crews were recognized for their work on two successful resuscitation calls. In addition, the citizen bystanders that assisted on one call and the patient they saved were recognized, as well as Jackie Ove, the South Milwaukee Public Health Administrator for her work in getting Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) placed in all the public schools and public-access municipal buildings.

Thanks to all of our firefighters for all you do!
