After talking to an old acquaintance, I decided I would (try) to put together a “story” on the affects of budget cuts on Fire Departments. This is not meant to be specific to any one Department or situation, but rather a generalized gathering of information. I invite all Firefighters (or anyone involved in The Fire Service) to chime in with their thoughts & opinions. And, just so you know, Names will not be used (unless specifically requested) – so you can remain completely anonymous.
I would like to gather as much thoughts, opinions, and info as I can for this story from you (Firefighters), because it is you guys who are on the front lines of having to deal with these budget cuts – not the bureaucrats, not the government, not the media, but you guys.
I have set a “deadline” of publication for my “story” to be the end of this month – May. I don’t like pushing people with deadlines, but I also realize that if I leave this open ended, then I am less likely to get responses (and certainly not in a timely manner).
I look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks! And Thank You for all you do 🙂
