Mayor Wants Funding For 4 Salisbury Firefighters

Posted:
 SALISBURY, MD - After 10 Salisbury firefighters positions were eliminated last month when finding from a grant ran out, mayor Jim Ireton plans to ask for funding to get four of those positions back.  In a statement released from Ireton's office on Tuesday, the mayor will forward a budget amendment to the Salisbury City Council to fund the four additional full-time Firefighter/EMT positions at a cost of $160,610.

Two of the new positions will staff Engine 16 at SFD Headquarters, one will staff Truck 1 at Station 1, and one will staff Truck 2 at Station 2.

“Presently the Salisbury Fire Department is fully staffed on each fire truck at 5 firefighters on board.  This budget amendment for 4 firefighters is dedicated to keeping 4 firefighters on each fire apparatus when sickness or vacation time has them understaffed,” said Mayor Ireton.

“The budget amendment is for $160,610 which pays these officers through the end of FY2015.  The Chief of the Fire Department will then be tasked with including them in his FY2016 budget that he presents to me, ” said Ireton.

Additionally the Mayor can report that he has signed employee action forms hiring 10 of the 11 remaining SAFER grant officers to part-time employment status in the City of Salisbury.
