Fire Crew Stays Steady

| July 30, 2013

Staffing at the Presque Isle Fire Department has been a topic of both debate and concern for the past few years, as the city has been working to create a budget that would not increase the tax rate…The Department has gone from 5 full time fire fighters per shift, down to 4, except for one shift that has 3…NewsSource 8 reporter Kelly O’Mara stopped by the Fire Department to see if these knew numbers are working.

Chief White says the fire department plans to take it’s time and really assess how well the program is working before making any final decisions on whether to hire back that fourth career firefighter…he expects it will be a least a year if not two before that decision is reached.
