Six Flags Fire Department Disbanded.
On September, 21, 2010, the management of Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township, N.J. announced it would be disbanding its fire department. IAFF Local I-73, the International Association of Fire Fighters and the Professional Fire Fighters of New Jersey believe that disbanding the fire department at Six Flags Great Adventure will diminish current levels of public safety service at the amusement park which receives 2,800,000 visitors annually, with a average daily attendance of 30,000 people.
Disbanding the fire department at Great adventure will result in delayed responses to emergencies where people need help. It will take longer for outside fire and emergency units to respond to Great Adventure and arrive at emergencies. Fire and emergency units from outside should continue to support Great Adventure's own fire department, not replace it.
The International Association of Fire Fighters and the Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey are working to support Local I-73 efforts to convey this important message to management.
Please call Angel Aristone at 732-928-2000 Ext. 2832. Tell management at Six Flags Great Adventure that disbanding their fire department is a mistake that will hurt public safety.
Looks like these were part of the cut offs the happened last week? I don't think this was a bright move for Al Weber...
