The Demopolis Fire Department has two stations and 23 firefighters, woefully short, according to Danny Todd. "We've had a decline in manpower issues at the Demopolis Fire Department," Todd, the district vice president of the International Association of Firefighters union, says. He says his district covers Alabama and feels it was his duty to point out the problems in a 5-page letter to city leaders, calling the personnel shortfall "disturbing." "We have engine companies running with two firefighters," Todd contends. Demopolis Public Safety Director Tommie Reese says much of Todd's concerns are unfounded.
