There will be a presentation from the Alameda Firefighters President Dom Weaver, followed by a question and answer session.
Since January 26th, BROWN OUTS have occurred on 34 of 41 days! (as of 3/08/09)
Due to the Closures, there have been 62 delayed responses! RIGHT NOW The City Manager and the Fire Chief are implementing the proposed “BROWNOUTS”
When staffing is at 25 or 26, the ambulance on Bay Farm Island will be closed. The closure of the ambulance carrying two multi-role firefighters will be a 40% decrease in the level of service to the citizens of Bay Farm.
When Staffing is at 24, the West End Fire Truck (serving Alameda Point, West Alameda and the Gold Coast) will be placed out of service.
According to the Fire Chief there will never be more the one unit browned out at a time.
Please continue to contact your City Officials, Put a STOP to placing citizens and Firefighters safety in jeopardy!

Any cuts to daily staffing by decreasing the number of firefighters on duty below 27 on the five fire engines, two aerial ladder trucks, and three advanced life support ambulances, represents an immediate threat to health and safety of the public as well as firefighters.
