The Cleveland firefighters’ union voted down the city’s proposal Thursday night to integrate the city’s Division of Fire and EMS departments.
“The outcome of the vote is a major disappointment and impedes our ability to deliver better, faster medical service and fire suppression in Cleveland,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “Improving service, particularly to people in need of emergency care, comes first and we will review all options to achieve that goal.”
The city says it will review all options to achieve integration and improve service.
