PLEASANT HILL (KCBS) — After the closure of four stations so far this year, the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District may close two additional stations citing a lack of revenue.
According to district officials, one station would close in July and the other in January 2014. The district covers all of Contra Costa County and its one million residents.
Firefighter Vito Impastato was astonished by the announcement. “This budget is like asking Concord High School with 2,000 students to just have four teachers. It’s going to be impossible to do,” he said.
