As city looks at cuts, fire department says now is not the time

BANGOR - For years the Bangor Fire Department had 88 staff operating the department. It's now facing some cuts.

They are worried that by losing these four positions, it will interfere with their everyday operation.

 

Firefighter John York said "We maintain that we shouldn't be cutting, we should be looking at ways to grow our positions because as our service for calls has been increasing dramatically."

 

They are hoping that community members will come and support them on Monday during the city council meeting. It starts at 7 p.m.
