VIDEO: An impasse between City Hall and the Rochester firefighter's union continues. As of July 1, 2019, one city firehouse goes dark every night. Firefighters at nearby stations answer the calls. "Okay, I'll just leave this here with you," said Mayor Lovely Warren to the president of Rochester Firefighters Association IAFF Local 1071. "It basically says that I am prepared to end dynamic staffing tonight." However, during a news conference held by the association Thursday afternoon, the mayor stunned everyone in the room when she stood up and addressed Eddie Santiago, the president of the association, while he was at the podium answering reporter’s questions. She laid out a proposal that she thinks would end the need for dynamic staffing and addressed some of the union's concerns.
