Sadly on July 25,2014 effective @ 08:00am, the Poquonnock Bridge Fire District laid off 9 of our L-2704 Brother Firefighters, eliminated 5 vacant positions for a total of 14 positions in the department no longer funded.Thats 42% of our department eliminated.
This leaves 16 firefighters, four per shift, with a district mandated 3 man minimum all on one Engine.
The manning issue of course violated our contract.
