VIDEO: Prescription drug abuse is spiraling into an overwhelming dilemma, and the opioid crisis is something our nation grapples with every day. In response, local firefighters are working to fight addiction in our neighborhoods. Thursday, Feb. 8, the Milwaukee Fire Department announced its involvement in a drug take back program. "We're going to assume that you're one of our neighbors and you need to get rid of some pills," said Milwaukee Fire Chief Mark Rohlfing. Totally confidential, no questions asked; the MFD is helping people get rid of unused or old prescriptions. Each of the city's 30 fire stations will now keep pre-addressed and pre-paid envelopes on-hand for drug disposal.
