Franklin’s Fire Station #2 (9911 S. 60th Street) was opened in 2001 in order to provide fire protection and Emergency Medical Services to the Franklin Business Park, which was experiencing rapid growth at that time. Since 2021, fire department staffing has lagged relative to incoming economic development and emergency response call volume, and Station #2 remains the only fire station in Milwaukee County not consistently staffed to national standards of four personnel. When Franklin Fire Station #2 was constructed, it was assumed that a fourth fire station would be required to provide coverage to the southwest portion of Franklin if and when development occurred there. Significant residential development is ongoing in this area, which is not adequately served by existing fire station locations and current staffing levels. This PowerPoint provides an analysis of current and future fire department staffing and deployment options.
