VIDEO: Twenty two firefighters have now walked out of the City of South Tucson Fire Department. This comes after the city made the decision to cut firefighters last year because of a financial deficit. Residents of South Tucson filled city hall Monday night to voice their concerns to the City council. Former Fire Captain, Rick Raimondi is one of the 22 firefighters resigning. He says, the last straw was the city cutting down how many firefighters work on each engine. The cut back on engine personnel from four to three firefighters is a big concern. "For the majority of us it's unsafe and unacceptable," says Raimondi.
