VIDEO: Cuts to public safety are raising eyebrows, especially within the Milwaukee Fire Department. The department will end up closing six of its fire stations across the city. The impact to you may be a slower response time in emergencies. "I don't want them to do it. I don't want them to close it down," said Regina King, lives by fire station. There's some comfort for Regina King and her family, knowing there's a Milwaukee fire station right across the street at 8th and Hayes in case there's an emergency. "I feel sad that they are not going to be here anymore," said Justin King, lives by fire station.
