Has the FF Union told the truth .......
The fire union that represents the firefighters in Lehigh Acres has misrepresented the truth about the SAFER Grant. If the Lehigh Acres Fire Dept applies and receives the Federal Grant the following all happen: The SAFER grant would limit the Lehigh Acres Fire Dept ability to lay off more firefighters during the grant program years. As a result, in the event Lehigh Acres Fire Dept commissioners needed to layoff, firefighters would be completely off limits, even firefighters not paid for with the grant. This is quote is from the Safer Grant paperwork “If a SAFER grantee loses any firefighters for any reason (such as attrition or termination) during the two-year period of performance, they must fill the position(s) or lose funding for the position(s) until the vacancy or vacancies are filled. Failure on the grantee’s part to adjust payment requests to reflect vacancies or staffing adjustments would be considered in default and require repayment of the Federal funds received. Extensio
