Firefighters Local-301 Urges Grassroots Support for S.A.F.E.R. Grant

Burlington’s firefighters union is asking for public support, to help ensure that the City Council will accept a $493,000 federal SAFER grant to hire three new firefighter-parmedics for two years, including salaries and benefits.


On a full-page ad insert found in the Hawk Eye, a local newspaper, Local 301 of the International Firefighters Association urges residents to attend next Monday’s Council meeting at 6:30, or to contact members Shane Mccampbell, Becky Anderson, Bob Fleming and Becky Shockley.   Councilman Tim Scott is not mentioned in the ad.
