State of the State RI

Guest: Ken Block, Watch Dog-RI, watchdogri.org
Host: Barry Schiller Time: 30 minutes
Block’s organization, Watch Dog-RI, has embarked on an extensive study of fire serve cost in Rhode Island and has compared the data to comparable locations nationally. Rhode Island ranks highest in cost, with other comparable communities, which have far less cost along many variables. Block shows data in chart form and discuses each. Comparisons include basic cost of personnel, equipment, pensions, disability pensions and more. Fire service costs are compared among each city and town, showing the cost of fire service per family of four. For more information and details, visit watchdogri.org.
