Miramichi needs to hire an adequate number of fire fighters for IAFF local 5087 Miramichi

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


For far to long our local fire fighters have been under-staffed which puts all of us in Miramichi and surrounding areas in danger.  This has been an ongoing issue for a long time and things just don't seem to be progressing. 

Our fire fighters have been asking for help with nothing being done by the city.  They are staffed well bellow standard and are hoping and relying on volunteers to make it to a call.  We have been fortunate to have not had an incident where there has been a loss of life do to the city's negligence so far, but there is a huge risk.  Everytime I hear news of a fire, I brace myself for the worse!

We as a community need to stand together and get behind our local fire station.  I encourage you all to write to the Miramichi city council pushing them on this issue, sign this petition, attend city council meetings if your able to and to talk about this issue everyone. Let's spread the word and stand together to get this done! 

It's time for us to help our local hero's so that they can keep us safe!
