Firefighters invite neighbors to back to school block party

Milwaukee Fire Dept. Engine 34 / MED 13 hosts its annual back to school block party on Saturday, Aug. 27, to help distribute school supplies to needy kids in the community and to help welcome neighbors into the firehouse, located at 6205 W. Burleigh St.

The event, at my local firehouse, runs from noon until 4 p.m. and visitors can enjoy free food, music, games and tours of the fire station and its apparatus. Kids will get free school supplies donated by local businesses and residents.

Firefighters will distribute safety information and recruiters from Milwaukee Police Dept. recruiters and the Milwaukee Fire Department Explorer Post 875 will be on hand to talk about career opportunities.

I've met these folks in emergency and non-emergency situations – like when they spray water on us every 4th of July at Enderis Park! – and I plan on going over just to say thank you (though they might be able to talk me into a burger or a brat off the grill, too)!
