Increase Corpus Christi Fire Departments Daily Staffing Level to 100
The Corpus Christi Fire Department is attempting to place in service 2 additional ambulances to help with the growing call volume. The city manager and as well as city council do not wish to add the personnel needed to properly and safely implement these units. In order to do that the Corpus Christi Fire Department needs to increase their Daily Staffing Level form 96 to 100. This would add the 4 additional firefighter per shift to safely and properly put the ambulances in service. The city manager and city council would like to reduce fire and ems protection to parts of the city in order to staff these units. They will pull multiple firefighters off of fire engines, reducing 4 person fire engines to 3, in order to staff these units. All fire service experts will tell you that this is not advisable and very dangerous to not only the firefighters but to the citizens and their property. Please help the Corpus Christi Fire Department increase their Daily Staffing Level to 100 by showing support to this petition. This petition will be used for nothing more than to show the support the people have for the Corpus Christi Fire Fighters..
