WAUWATOSA, Wis. (WISN) – Throughout the month of April, hundreds of firefighters from every department in Milwaukee County will undergo a four-hour training session on how to deal with a high-rise fire.

“One of the more complex fires that we will ever right is a high rise fire,” said deputy fire Chief Aaron Lipski of the Milwaukee Fire Department. “We really feel as we are building something really new here with this level and depth of training.”
