A huge thank you to the firefighters that worked hard last night to assist us in the 2300 block of Jefferson. Muskegon Professional Firefighters Union - IAFF Local 370, Fruitport Fire Department, Norton Shores Professional Firefighters - Local 2559, Muskegon Township Firefighters Local 4132, Norton Shores Fire Department, Muskegon Charter Township Fire Department and Canteen 450.
Every one on this fire worked hard and went home or back to their stations tired and wet. Thank you ... See MoreSee Less
That’s wonderful! Congratulations! But - are they really getting “lifesaving medical”??? Can’t the author of this article honor these men further, by proofreading this article? How many errors can you find, just in the first paragraph?
“MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. - Three Muskegon Heights firefighters are getting a lifesaving medical and certificate of thanks for taking why the chief called exceptional risk to rescue citizens from danger.” 🙄
So the Muskegon FFs don’t have guaranteed jobs if the metro dept goes through???
This is the best thing I have seen local government do in a very long time. Continue to find common shares services!
Connie, I think what you and everyone else is looking for is consolidation of fire services. In a consolidation of fire services, the fire department would operate under a board who had representation from all municipalities involved. This is a take over just like the article says. This is a dead-end proposal that other municipalities will not get involved with and it will kill any consolidation for the next 10 years. I think the City of Muskegon Heights Commissioners were right the other night to question this proposal. This would be a good time for everyone to step back and talk about all the options of consolidation and not race into a dead end one in hopes it will grow.
I'm no mathematician but I think this is going to cost the city of Muskegon more money . 😏
