Like many area fire departments, the West Allis Fire Department loves to give back to the community.  Yeah, I'm a little biased since West Allis is my hometown!  But, this story is very heart warming.  Recently, the WAFD went the extra mile by making a 9-year-old terminal cancer patient feel like a true hero!

Mackenzie Clyde had a day in her honor, complete with being named fire fighter for the day!  After she put on the fire fighting gear and boots, she was given a ride in a fire truck to Station 2!  Mayor Dan Devine also added to her honor with a big announcement...

"I do hereby proclaim, Friday, January 17, 2020, as Mackenzie Clyde Day in the city of West Allis!"

More on her journey is told in a book about her called, "My Friend Mackenzie".  If you'd like to help, see the WEBSITE
