Alameda Firefighters Begin To Collect Signatures for Minimum Staffing Measure

Dear Editor,

This Charter amendment will require the City of Alameda to maintain minimum and safe staffing levels of Alameda firefighters, fire engines, fire trucks and emergency medical apparatus (paramedic ambulances) in order to prevent reductions in fire fighting and fire prevention services, to protect against reductions in rapid response and life saving emergency medical care and to eliminate closures of neighborhood fire stations.

“Article XXIX Fire and Emergency Medical Services Minimum Protection”

For the purpose of establishing minimum levels of apparatus and staffing deployment for the providing of fire protection and emergency services by the Alameda Fire Department in the City.

Since January 26th, BROWNOUTS have occurred on 44 of 51 days!( as of 3/18/09 )

Due to the Closures, there have been 75 delayed responses!

Please visit http://www.savealamedafirehouses.com/ to learn more and to find out how to sign the petition!

Thank you,

- Alameda Firefighters
