Milwaukee Has 776 Men on Force

In the November 28 issue of FIRE ENGINEERING, there appeared a tabulation of the strength of various fire departments, as compiled by the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce. The list stated that Milwaukee had 256 men in the fire department. Chief Peter Steinkellner of Milwaukee writes that the figure is incorrect and may have been true in 1893. At present there ar 776 men in the department and the number will be increased considerably this year. Based upon the correct number of men, each fireman protects a population of seven hundred persons.
