Sault Ste. Marie professional fire fighters say public safety is at risk under a new plan from the city’s fire chief.
“we believe the public deserves to be properly informed about decisions that affect their lives and their property.” said in an email from union president Marty Kenopic Friday.
“The city has refused our request to have former Ontario Fire Marshal Patrick Burke appear before open council to discuss his concerns about the Oct. 26 decision to cut frontline fire department resources by almost 25 per cent.
As a result, and so that residents can be informed about their safety, your Sault Ste. Marie Fire Fighters are taking the extraordinary step of holding a special meeting”
TOWN HALL MEETING ON PUBLIC SAFETY
Mr. Burke will be in attendance and will discuss the impact the cuts will have on emergency response capabilities and overall public safety in Sault Ste. Marie and answer questions from the public and the media.
