STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — An emergency preparedness drill was held this week in Stamford, but some say not everyone got the call to participate.
Stamford has both professional and volunteer firefighters, but some volunteer fire chiefs said they felt slighted when they were not invited to a tabletop hurricane drill in the city this week.
“I don’t believe there was any malice behind it. It’s just that we’re in very sensitive negotiations right now and things like this don’t help,” Long Ridge Fire Company Chief Stuart Teitelbaum told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams. “They put a bad taste in some people’s mouths.”
