MILWAUKEE — While Milwaukee watched in horror, members of the Milwaukee Fire Department tried to save lives of people shot by a mass shooter at Molson Coors on Feb. 26.

On radio traffic from that day, you can hear the urgency in Assistant Chief Aaron Lipski's voice.

"Start sending rescue task forces out," he instructs as his team attempted life saving efforts on one of the shooting victims.

It's a sight first responders can't forget. The Milwaukee Fire Department provides support to crews who respond to traumatic events like the shooting.

The department has a peer support team, which is trained to help firefighters and paramedics talk about traumatic scenes and begin their recovery.

The I-Team has the opportunity to speak with Lipski and the Health and Wellness Director, responsible for the peer support team's response after the awful events of the Molson Coors.
