Compton Firefighters Voice Concerns To City Council

By Charles Jackson Jr.

City Pride Magazine attended the Compton City Council meeting and witnessed First Responders from the Compton Fire Department confront the city council about the treatment of the local firefighters. They claim to be understaffed and working with a lack of resources within the department. Retired Captain Mark Smith, VP of Firefighter Union Daniel Salizar, Chaplain Marcus Jackson, and Firefighter Paul Scott all spoke on the conditions of the Compton stations and the tremendous lack of resources and support from the City of Compton and the past city councils.

    Thank you for helping echo the concerns of our association members that directly affect our working conditions, mental health and family life and directly impact the safety of our Compton residents and visitors. We will not stop voice our concerns until our safety concerns are addressed. We will attend the first council meeting in September. We appreciate your support.
