Following September’s rumblings that fire stations are being understaffed, Richmond Firefighters Association Local 995 has launched a new blog that details the daily closures of fire companies (including Quint 1 (Church Hill) CLOSED for 24 hrs. on October 7 and October 10).

Since the beginning of the 2009 – 2010 fiscal year, the Richmond Fire Department budget has experienced cuts that directly impact the amount of fire protection available on a daily basis to the City of Richmond. This blog is to serve as a place where information can be found regarding where daily cuts are occurring.

This situation was addressed at the last 7th District meeting on September 27th by Fire Chief Creecy.
