Detroit firefighters say they are conserving supplies and pooling money to make up for a shortage soap, cleansers, hand towels and toilet paper at city firehouses.
Detroit Fire Commissioner Donald Austin tells the Detroit
Free Press the shortages are "inappropriate" but the department has
implemented a new purchasing and inventory system to better assess
Department officials say a temporary lag caused by a
change in purchasing caused a dip in station stockpiles in July, but
supply levels are near normal levels at most stations.
Firefighters say the products they need still aren't making it to fire station kitchens and bathrooms.
Daniel McNamara, president of the Detroit Fire Fighters
Association says city firefighter would live in "dirty and unhygienic"
conditions unless they made up for shortages themselves.
