Milwaukee firefighters canvassed a neighborhood Thursday, Oct. 7, checking for working smoke alarms during Fire Prevention Week. Walking in the rain, firefighters with the Milwaukee Fire Department heard the faint chirp of an alarm’s battery dying and didn't waste any time working to fix it. "We just heard a chirp," firefighters said. "We don’t know if it’s coming from the house we just passed, but we just want to make sure that it works and make sure that the battery is good when we go inside." The house calls were just one of the initiatives of the Milwaukee Fire Department during Fire Prevention Week, visiting homes and making sure the fire prevention tools meant to save lives are installed and working properly.
