Staffed for Failure Clock

This past Thursday marks the re-retirement of our city manager, who, last November, advised the city council that the fire department was "Staffed for Failure". Since then, the proposed four additional firefighters were removed from the budget, an additional day-time lieutenant was proposed by the mayor, but never came to light, and a number of other situations with direct relation to staffing has occurred. To celebrate his call for additional Career Firefighters, we have added a count-up clock to our home page marking the days since the city was notified of it's "Staffed for Failure" fire department and the zero action taken to make improvements... because you know... we can wait another year.
