According to Fire Chief LeClair with expanded consolidation, Portsmouth wouldn’t spend $4 million for a new Station 3 that’s listed in the city’s capital improvement plan, while earning income by providing the additional service. And instead of the usual two firefighters manning the Pease firehouse, there would be five at all three Portsmouth firehouses.
“It’s a no-brainer,” LeClaire said. “And it’s basically making official what we already do.”
Interesting but it needs a full vetting of the facts.
