Will Fire Commissioner
Cathy Kruse Save Her Son?
If the Commissioners Plan A is another Safer Grant, and Plan B is a Tax Assessment (in a recent Lehigh Acres Citizen poll showed that 69% of the participates were against the assessment), so what is Plan C if A and B fail to save her son the Lehigh Acres firefighter?
Maybe it’s this:
1. Browning out two stations for 12 hours per day (rotating stations on the off peak time using historical data)
2. Changing firefighter schedules to 12 hours a day for 4 days on and three day off – verses – 24 hours on and 48 hours off plus one pay day off every two and half weeks.
These two items will immediately save the Fire District dollars within the first thirty days and millions over time that came be used to save jobs verses layoffs.
Also maintenance issues become easier to handle because you know when that station equipment is not being used.
These savings measures are 100% trackable and quantitative and should not be ignored.
