VIDEO: For the first time in a decade the Milwaukee Fire Department is recruiting applicants for firefighter positions, despite cuts outlined in the mayor's budget. Roosevelt Walker is one of many applying to be a Milwaukee Firefighter. "It's an awesome opportunity. Personally I have a passion for helping people in general," Walker said. The last time Milwaukee fire accepted applications for firefighter positions was 2007. Over the years when jobs open the Fire and Police Commission go to the list created at that time. Recruiter Kischa Buford said the commission exhausted the list so it's time for a new one.
