Bucks, Fire Department Have Cost Sharing Agreement
Deputy Chief praises Bucks' commitment to safety.
The team and MFD are partnering on a co-branded t-shirt that the team will sell. Half of the proceeds will go towards the Bucks Foundation, while MFD will allocate its half to the Ignite the Spirit program for firefighters in crisis and the Junior Fire Institute said Deputy Chief Aaron Lipski.
“It’s a little like a NASA launch control facility when you’re in the room they’ve installed for this,” said Lipski describing the arena’s control center.
Lipski praised the Bucks for being proactive with the security planning for the entire complex.
“Too often we get mired in the negativity, but this is incredibly positive,” said Alderman Mark Borkowski.
The fire hydrants around surrounding Deer District and Fiserv Forum are also subject to a special collaboration between the department, Milwaukee Water Works and team. They contain 15 unique designs painted by Chief Water Distribution Repair worker Chad Schuster
The committee unanimously approved the agreement. Next it will go before the full Common Council.
