The department is committed to community outreach and serving the citizens of the City of Milwaukee. Be sure to check out some of the programs being offered on-site:
Firefighter Rig vs Fire Boat - A MFD engine and the Fireboat "Trident" will make an appearance and demonstrate firefighting equipment as they each compete with each other to hit select markers with water. Firefighters will distribute safety information and answer questions of those in attendance making your event an educational experience as well.
MFD Safety Training - Get some hands on experience trying on Firefighter gear and even get in some target practice with hitting pylons with water from a fire hose.
Survive Alive House - Every year thousands of Milwaukee children get the opportunity to experience the Survive Alive House. Children are given a brief instructional introduction and then are ushered into a bedroom. Cinematic smoke is pumped into the room and children are given an opportunity to demonstrate how they would get out. Staying low below smoke, feeling the door, and yelling for help are all reinforced during this unique learning experience.
