I have been speaking with certain members of NOFD who have informed me that there will be 2 hearings of some sort taking place next week to discuss the topic of pay raises for new fire hirees and NOPD. I was also told that it would be in our (NOEMS) best interest to be there in force (meaning numbers). NOFD is planning on being there and whether or not "we" show up, they(NOFD) will still be speaking on our behalf also.

* On Wednesday, the 23rd of August, at 1p.m. the topic of pay raises will be discussed at the Cicvil Service Comission. This is located on the 7th floor of city hall on the East up early because space is limited and there will be plenty of firemen there also.

*On Thursday, the 24th of August, at 2 p.m., the city council's budget comittee will be discussing/voting on this matter. This will be located on the !st floor in the city council chambers on the East side of City Hall.

There have also been many rumors flying around about the future of our service and for those how you who care about what happens to New Olreans EMS, I strongly suggest we start sticking together and help our administration in any way possible.

Thankyou, Susan Robinson
