Senator Palacios says Cut the Firefighter to 8 Hour Shifts!!!!

On the KUAM news this Thursday evening, August 11, 2011, Senator Palacios said he feels that Guam Fire Department firefighters should be cut down to 8-hour shifts. Here is the KUAM news cast.....

So Senator Palacios said, "I did the math." Or did he say, "I did the maff."? My question to this Senator is how will he staff an extra shift? 

Right now we are working 24 hours on and 24 hours off or an A shift and a B shift. If we go to an 8 hour shift, that would mean that we would need to staff 3 shifts in order to cover the entire 24 hour period. If we already have a staffing shortage for 2 shifts, how are we going to staff a third shift without hiring. I would like to know what kind of "Maff" Senator Palacios is using. I wanna learn that kinda "Maff".

Is this the kind of Senator that we want to keep re-electing into office? He has no solutions....only complaints. All of our problems in the Fire Department have happened under Senator Palacios' watch as our Oversight Chair.

Great Job Senator!!!! Keep it Up!!!

Until next time....
