Milwaukee Fire Department personnel will be honored during a special presentation at tomorrow’s (Tuesday, March 3, 2015) regular meeting of the Common Council.

Media coverage is invited for tomorrow’s meeting, which will begin at 9 a.m. the third floor Council Chamber at City Hall, 200 E. Wells St.

Alderman Joe Davis, Sr. asked for the formal recognition after the January 14, 2015 fire call in the 2nd Aldermanic District near N. 77th St. and W. Villard Ave., which resulted in the rescue and resuscitation of a five-year-old boy. MFD personnel will be honored for their exemplary service during that life-saving fire call response, which included multiple MFD units.

In another ceremony at tomorrow’s Council meeting, standout Dominican High School basketball player Diamond Stone will be honored for his participation in the 2015 McDonald’s All-American Game.

Mr. Stone was selected to play for the East squad in the 38th McDonald’s All-American Game in Chicago on April 1, 2015, a high honor as he was one of just a few selected to compete from a pool of hundreds of nominated U.S. players. Alderman Davis also requested the recognition for Mr. Stone, who resides in the 2nd District.

Tomorrow’s meeting will be televised live on the City Channel (Channel 25 on Time Warner Cable in the City of Milwaukee), and on U-Verse Channel 99. Online viewing is available by going to
