Arizona Firefighters Resign Over Staffing Cuts

SOUTH TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN9) – Twenty-two firefighters have now walked out of the City of South Tucson Fire Department. This comes after the city decided to cut firefighters last year because of a financial deficit.

Residents of South Tucson filled city hall Monday night to voice their concerns to the City council. 

Former Fire Captain, Rick Raimondi is one of the 22 firefighters resigning. He says the last straw was the city cutting down how many firefighters work on each engine.
