Closures. I wonder why they can just staff them with volunteers like they were 4 years ago before the union got involved?

Progress being made toward board appointment. Current term up next year. This union has to go.
Why are you blaming the Union because there is not enough tax money to pay fire fighters? Unions do not tax Government Agencies do.When the Grant money is gone so are the paid (union or not) help.

Yes stations close when no one is there. You won and a volunteer fire department will have to be formed or the District will have to pay some one Else's department to provide service. It is happening all over the country.
