FIRE DEPARTMENT BUDGETS CUTS?
Please tell us about it....
FirefighterCloseCalls.com is compiling information on fire department cuts during these tough economic times.
Your information and who you are remains anonymous. We don't care who you are or what your e-mail address is, if you see any articles or have any details on FD budget cuts, brownouts, layoffs, staffing reductions -- anything related: send details, article links or just cut and paste it to us at: email@example.com
Anything that has affected or will impact 2009 and the future fiscal picture of any fire department (career or volunteer) ... we are interested in.
We don't care where it is from. USA, Canada, wherever ...
Just send what you have to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have an old friend who is a fire department statistics expert and he is going to compile the info by area, community etc and then we'll post it in an overview type of format.
Who knows, the info may be of help to one fire department to another etc ... and THAT'S the goal.
The Crew at www.FireFighterCloseCalls.com
Note: FirefighterNation.com will post results of the submissions and other information passed along by Firefighter Close Calls.
