Toronto Fire Services Say Fewer People Died in Fires Last Year
Last year there was the fewest number of fatalities due to fire since 2006.
That news in a release from Toronto Fire Services Friday who says the 11 fatal fires are the lowest total in 6 years.
Also interesting to note - that Fire Chief Jim Sales says that the operating budget recommendation to eliminate 101 vacant firefighter positions and five fire trucks would have minimal impact on current operations.
It's a significant departure from the story the Fire Fighters Union is painting through commercials saying lives could be at risk if the city goes ahead with the cuts.
