To the Editor,
Recently, seven of nine rank and file career firefighters and career officers of the Burley Fire Department voted to start a local Union and affiliate with International Association of Fire Fighters and Professional Fire Fighters of Idaho. With this affiliation comes many benefits that our fellow career firefighters across the state already enjoy. We are excited to be joining these organizations that have an excellent reputation for improving safety and professionalism in the firefighting field.
As a Union we would like to stress this decision was made with no malice or hard feelings toward the City of Burley. The Burley Fire Department has a long standing great relationship with Mayor Jon Anderson, the City Council, and City Administrator Mark Mitton. Their door has always been open to answer any questions or address any problems that we might have. We have always worked hard together to provide the best emergency fire and medical protection possible to the citizens of Burley and North Cassia Rural Fire District. With the help of the twenty five Burley Fire Department paid-on-call/volunteers we will continue to provide this great service to our community.
One of the benefits that we can excersize as Union Local #3308 is endorse publicly those candidates that we as a group feel will be the best choice for the citizens of Burley, and will continue the great support of the Burley Fire Department that we already enjoy. We would like to endorse Mayor Jon Anderson, Councilman Gordon Hansen, Councilman Dennis Dexter, former Councilman Don Dean. These candidates have a proven track record of supporting the mission of the fire department . We know they will continue their support of the fire department and will work with us to continually improve emergency services.
Thank you,Burley Fire Fighters Local #3308 P.O. Box 225 Burley Idaho 83318
