News roundup: Firefighters plan to picket City Hall on ambulance issue

posted by Philip Anselmo in batavia, city council, firefighter, ambulance.

A union of Batavia firefighters will set up outside City Hall "later this morning" to protest the City Council's decision to end the city-supported ambulance service this fall, WBTA's Dan Fischer reports. No time is given for when members of Fire Fighters Local 896 will hold the rally, which is being called an "informational picket."

This may be a silly question but how is anyone supposed to come show their support for the firefighters if he/she doesn't know when to come? I realize they could be at an actual emergency instead of demonstrating as planned but there must be a time in mind, isn't there?

We later learned that the protest was to be held at 11:00 a.m. We will be posting coverage of the protest presently.
