Ashland Fire Chief Mike D’Orazi on Tuesday took the ultimate stand against a demanding City Administration. After being pressured to reduce the department operating budget by an additional $300,000, Chief D’Orazi resigned his position to hopefully keep from having any Fire Fighter positions cut in pursuit of such deep cuts.
Thank you, Chief D’Orazi, for setting forth an exemplary example of service, dedication, and sacrifice, in order maintain services to your community. We all can learn lessons from your dedicated leadership. Hopefully your actions will inspire positive action and have not been in vain.
After some painful staffing issues over the last few years, Germantown FD swore in three new FF/Paramedics last night. This brings their daily staffing ability up to 3 shifts of 5 personnel on duty 24/7, with at least two of those being Paramedics.
