Surprise (AZ) Union Says Fire Apparatus Removal a Risk

Surprise AZ

The union representing firefighters in the city of Surprise says the city is taking away a much-needed resource, reports ABC 15 Arizona.

President of the Surprise Firefighters Association Mike Payne says the city is choosing to take away Engine 305 and replace it with a truck, called a low acuity unit. He says the truck requires less manpower and in return, costs less money. Payne says the truck does not put out fires and is only used when responding to smaller medical emergencies.
