Scranton found out

Scranton found out that they had cut TOO deep in Fire department cuts, Will our dictator? Doubtful. He blames anyone he can for everything he can. No way will he admit he went to far.

####
Mayor Chris Doherty announced a dozen firefighters will be re-hired and a fire station reopened. It's all part of an ongoing battle over fire protection in the Electric City.
####

####
Since January first Engine 10 on East Mountain has sat empty. It will re-open Saturday morning
####
South Station has been part time (manned about 1/8 the time) for 2 years.

####
It took the first due engine about ten minutes to respond, because the closest fire station, Engine 10 on East Mountain was closed.
####
This is happening HERE NOW. The only way for it to be changed is for the citizens of W-B to force the issue. Leighton doesn't care about us or the people of Wilkes-Barre. Just himself and his campaign contributors.

####
"I firmly believe our firefighters would have been safer and the outcome of those fires would have been much different if we had adequate resources, especially on the first alarm. And I think this decision is the appropriate response to start the process to restore adequate resources on our first alarm," said Assistant Fire Chief Jim Floryshak.
####
"restore adequate resources on our first alarm", more true words have rarely been spoken.

We need to force the dictator to restore FD manning to 14 MINIMUM. This will bring South Station back to full time status and make a major difference in our fire fighting abilities, our safety as well as yours. This needs to be done NOW.

  1. When you guys have one truck fighting the fire and two trying to save the homes on both sides, the end result is the home on fire burns to the ground.
