Presentation

Staffing Level on Fire Trucks

My Ray Sneed, DC Fire Department Union representative spoke on the current police that removed the fifth man from hook and ladder trucks. Mr. Sneed stated that it is essential to have a full complement of personnel on each truck and that to justify the removal of the fifth man because of a budget overrun was not plausible. There would not be a cost savings as the personnel would still be on the Fire Department payroll. The union felt that this was a political move in order to generate uproar over the current budget deficit.

Although the Office of the Chief of the Fire Department was invited repeatedly to send a representative to address ANC3B and the members of the community, no one attended. ANC3B voted to support the return of the fifth man to the hook and ladder trucks. (4-0-0).
