Staffing ULP
04/29/22 - IAFF Local 1464
The Town of Scituate states that they will comply with the DLR and CERB decisions, yet has not produced clear proof of such compliance. They state that Local 1464's suggestions for staffing are "nonsensical and detrimental to the health and safety of Scituate residents'.  So is an Engine Company staffed by one firefighter.  See the Town's response.
