Fairfield Firefighters to be Given Bulletproof Vests
FAIRFIELD- Fairfield Firefighters will soon be equipped with something to shield them not from flames, but from bullets. The City Council approved between $15,000-$20,000 to purchase 30 of the vests for every fire engine in the city. "Twenty thousand dollars. That's a good amount of money. And that can be used for the town," resident Chris Owen said. "I don't see why we need bullet proof vests for firefighters."
