Purpose of the Fire Station Fund
The Fire Station Fund was created to improve the working and living conditions for firefighters, EMTs, and paramedics at all 36 AFRD fire stations, including the five located at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Atlanta firefighters and EMTs work 24-hour shifts, which means the stations are not only their workplace but also their second home. All day every day, someone is using the washers, dryers, ice machines, coffee makers, kitchen faucets, and refrigerators while someone else is relaxing in a recliner watching tv. It’s no surprise that the heavy usage leads to breaks. What may surprise you is that the replacement is not covered by the city’s budget.
