At this time, the Mayor of Yonkers has proposed a budget that will dramatically impact you and your loved ones, as well as the Yonkers Fire Department.
Proposed cuts include:
Eliminating Fire Department response to all medical emergencies.
Critical minutes will pass before a patient receives crucial emergency medical care including OXYGEN, CPR and the application of an automated external defibrillator (AED).
Reducing the number of firefighters on a daily basis and closing fire companies and potentially your firehouses.
The result will be an increase in response times to fires and other emergencies, due to less available fire companies and firefighters responding from further away.
This budget is now before the Yonkers City Council. The City Council will be holding a public budget hearing on Tuesday, May 29 at 7:00pm in the City Council Chambers at City Hall. At this hearing, anyone will have the opportunity to speak.
We are asking that you please attend this hearing and speak out against these cuts to our lives, safety and property. Tell the City “NO” to any cuts to the fire department and request the City protect your life and those of the Yonkers Firefighters.
PLEASE CONTACT THE MAYOR & CITY COUNCIL
