Starting Monday, four fire trucks will be removed from service in the city.

The move has the union representing firefighters warning about slower response times.

Council voted for the cuts as part of a money-saving effort. Two of the decommissioned trucks will come from Scarborough, and one truck each in Etobicoke and Bloor West Village.

The Bloor West Village fire station is actually lined up to be closed.

Over 80 firefighters will be affected by this closure and decommissioning but most will take over positions left by the 70 firefighters who've retired so far this year.
