Wyoming residents want answers on dismissals at fire hall

943

About 40 people carrying signs protested the dismissal of three senior members of the Wyoming fire department Friday afternoon.

Three firefighters were dismissed Tuesday after two investigations by a human resources firm. Chief Steve Clemens would not say why the three senior department members were let go saying it was a personnel matter.

One day later, four firefighters gave notice of their resignation and retirement after criticizing the move to the chief during a training meeting.

Residents walked by Southwest Credit Union and the Plympton-Wyoming Municipal offices carrying signs saying the chief should resign and taxpayers want answers to what has occurred.

They’re calling on council members to hold a public meeting on the issue.
