The Revere Fire Department rank and file has done the right thing in a big way in order to save the jobs of a half-dozen of their colleagues by making a deal with the city to forgo contractual obligations.
This is big medicine for their colleagues, who would certainly have lost their jobs.
It is also a positive public safety bonus. With the loss of a half-dozen firefighters, the public safety factor here would have declined substantially.
The one-for-all and all-for-one creed is alive and well with Revereâ€™s firefighters.
They have set an example that other public safety unions in this city might follow in order to save jobs for their colleagues.
We are proud that Revereâ€™s firefighters have looked out for their brothers during these difficult times.
It says something very good about this cityâ€™s firefighters.
