Youngstown City Council’s Safety Committee held a virtual meeting this week to discuss the rolling fire station closures. On Saturday, the firefighter’s union wanted to share their side of the story. Chief Barry Finley told council that the citizens’ safety is not being affected by the temporary closing of fire stations. The city needs 27 firefighters on duty to man the trucks. IAFF Local 312, which is the union for the firefighters, has spoken out against Finley on multiple occasions. The union sent a letter to council on Saturday. They say they want to clarify a few things that were said during Thursday’s meeting.
