Milwaukee to Enlarge Repair Shops
The fire commissioners of Milwaukee, Wis., have authorized Chief Peter Steinkellner to enlarge the fire department repair shops. Under the chief’s plan, arrangements will be made to assemble fire apparatus on truck chassis in the enlarged shops. Pumps and other equipment will be purchased and mounted on their own chassis.
According to this plan of operation, Chief Steinkellner believes that it will effect a saving to the city of $30,000 a year.
