Report: City of Stockton could save millions

STOCKTON, CA - Staff reductions in the Stockon Fire Department could save the city between $5 million and $7 million a year, according to a grand jury report released Monday.  

The investigation into staffing levels stemmed from the passage of Measure H in November 2010. The measure gives more control back to the city of Stockton rather than the fire department union.

As it stands, the fire department staffs four firefighters to an engine and five to a truck, while the cities of Tracy, Manteca, and Lodi staff fire engines and trucks with three firefighters each, according to the report.

The report noted the Stockton firefighters union said its staffing levels were similar to staffing at fire agencies in Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose.
