FALL RIVER — Saying he was "extremely happy about the development," Mayor Sam Sutter announced Tuesday afternoon that Fall River has been awarded a $2.06 million SAFER grant that will add 10 firefighters to the Fall River Fire Department.
Mayor Flanagan will go forward with the layoffs of 60 firefighters this summer, reducing the Fall River Fire Department from a complement of 213 to 153.
“We are going to see a more nimble fire department on July 1,” Flanagan said.
FALL RIVER — The Federal Emergency Management Agency informed the city on Monday there will be no SAFER grant, which could have saved the jobs of 16 firefighters, Mayor Will Flanagan announced.
That means Flanagan will go forward with the layoffs of 60 firefighters this summer, reducing the Fall River Fire Department from a complement of 213 to 153.
