It's in their power

To the Editor:

“I am proud to be a firefighter.”

So begins The Firefighter’s Creed. It continues with the pledge that “I never, by word or deed, will bring reproach upon the fair name of the fire service, nor permit others to do so unchallenged.”

Public awareness of the shady practice of using sick time to trigger overtime pay has now brought reproach upon the Warwick Fire Department. Warwick taxpayers realize they are being fleeced by this absurd provision.

Firefighters who are rightly proud of their service should recommit to their Creed and renounce this disreputable practice. It is in their power, and it is their solemn duty and obligation, to do so.
