Quispamsis Supports Changing Role For Volunteer Firefighters

Quispamsis Council is supporting the decision to change the role of volunteer firefighters which has caused some controversy in the Kennebecasis Valley. 

Mayor Murray Driscoll is hoping Fire Chief Bill Ireland is correct when he estimates the fire department's new model is expected to save 75 thousand dollars.

Rothesay Mayor Bill Bishop has questioned whether removing volunteers from front line fire duties will save any money. 

Driscoll says one problem has been the availability of the volunteers when they were needed because of their other commitments since you never know when a fire will break out.
