DERRY- The town of Derry is looking to make big cuts to the budget. Under the current proposal, 17 full-time positions would be cut in town including nine in the fire department; six un-filled positions and three filled positions.
If these cuts are made, the Hampstead Road fire station would shut down. Firefighters say it would cut off the entire district from being within national standards as far as response time, and bring the department's staffing down to what it was 40 years ago.
Firefighters say response time could increase from a matter of seconds to minutes depending on where their crews are, they say they're usually on multiple calls at once. Homeowners' insurance rates can also increase the farther you live from a fire station.
The town administrator is expected to present his budget to the town council on April 1.
