Flint Fire Station Closure Delayed
Flint fire stations won’t have to shut down this weekend, because the planned demotions of fire department supervisors was postponed. The mayor’s office is going to take some time to review the situation, but it certainly isn’t over yet.
Twenty-one fire department supervisors received the notice of demotion earlier this month, but those changes, if they went into effect today, would leave too few captains and lieutenants to staff the city’s five fire stations. Mayor Dayne Walling sa
id this week that he was analyzing statistics at three stations with the intention of closing two of them.
