Should firefighters be able to use the department fire engines to stop at the grocery store or a restaurant to get something to eat?
That’s what Lebanon City Council is debating and the fire department is not happy about it.
Council members will vote on a resolution Tuesday night that would stop firefighters from using fire engines to grocery shop or eat at restaurants while on the job. It reads, “Fire Department personnel are expected to bring with them any food items when they report for work.” “We average five to six calls a day. One of those calls we should be able to get a meal,” said former Lebanon firefighter Chip Vanetta.
Vanetta worked for the department for 31 years and says, he’s advocating for the department now that this resolution is on the table.
