Brevard Firefighters Want More Money

Brevard County firefighters are advocating for better wages and benefits in upcoming contract negotiations. With starting pay under $15 an hour, many firefighters are leaving for better opportunities in neighboring counties. Low morale and high turnover rates are major concerns. A rally supporting their efforts will take place outside the government center in Viera this afternoon at 3:30… just ahead of a 5 p.m. county commissioners meeting.
