Structure Changes Justified Due to Firefighters Sleeping Nights?

“Several people have approached me and have said that the overnight shift firefighters aren’t actually working and are sleeping all night long. I requested the call logs from the Chief a couple of weeks ago, because I (100%) do not agree. I will be looking into it once I receive the information and will be better prepared to address those comments.” ~RI Representative Doreen Costa (R- Dist. 31)

Representative  Costa, whose district encompasses a large portion of North Kingstown and Exeter spoke after learning that the Tentative Agreement had not been ratified. She is awaiting  shift call records before making any further comment on the situation between the Town and Local 1651 or its effect on taxpayers. Costa who has been supportive of the department has expressed concern with the escalating cost of litigation and its impact on constituents.
