The Milwaukee Fire Department has been in a battle to gain more resources for several years.
After some fire stations were closed to save city dollars, firefighters faced a heavier workload.
Now, the city and county are able to make a new step toward seeing some relief.
MFD reopened station 28 on Monday, located at 424 N. 30th St. on the city's near west side.
Station 28 originally opened in 1905. It was decommissioned in the winter of 2017 due to budget cuts.
The station remained closed for five years, only used for recruiting, until now.
Milwaukee city and county leaders gathered Monday morning to cut the red ribbon. "The city could easily be classified as in crisis," Fire Chief Aaron Lipski said. "In this neighborhood, we've had numerous multi-building fires in the past few years."
