FOX10 News spoke with Prichard Fire Department (PFD) Chief David Hale about allegations his fire department is "severely" under-staffed, and under-equipped. We wanted to speak with him after our Investigative Team received emails from sources detailing problems with the city's fire trucks and dangerously low levels of staff members. Chief Hale did admit there is a serious problem with the department being under-staffed, so much to the point that he refused to disclose just how many employees are currently working there. When we asked him how many employees are on the roster, he said, "I'll let the mayor answer that... that's just something that he needs to discuss and not me."
