The Redding Fire Department will be fully staffed year-round for the first time ever, reports KRCR.

The fire department posted to Facebook, “For the first time in Redding Fire Department history, Engine 2 at Placer Street and Buenaventura Blvd is staffed with a permanent firefighter. In the past, this station has been staffed with just a captain and engineer. A seasonal or apprentice firefighter would staff the engine during fire season only. A Council approved request from Fire Chief Vanlandingham to restructure the personnel assigned to the apprentice firefighter/ vegetation management crew allowed this monumental staffing to happen at a zero cost to the taxpayers. Station 4 and 7 will be staffed in mid-June.”
