“I believe all urban Gateway Cities have struggled since the meltdown of 2009,” Gomes said in a recent email.

“The loss of large amounts of state aid to cities and towns has had a significant impact on fire protection in Gateway Cities,” Gomes said, explaining that “lack of funding has resulted in deferred purchases of vehicles, equipment and public safety building replacement.”

Not too dissimilar to the decline in fire department staffing Fall River experienced several years ago, Gomes described his city’s fire department hitting lows in staffing levels — 191 firefighters in 2010 — to a high of 236 firefighters. Today, he said, the department has a fire fighting force of 219.

New Bedford has seven fire engines and three ladder trucks spread through seven fire stations. Each apparatus is manned by four firefighters, the minimum level as recommended by the National Fire Protection Association.
