NLV Fire Chief Placed On Leave

(Las Vegas, NV) –North Las Vegas City Manager Tim Hacker has put fire captain Al Gillespie on administrative leave after he refused to implement what he stated were “dangerous cuts” to the way the department used 911.

Hacker laid off the deputy chief two weeks ago. A spokesperson for the city said the situation is unrealated to the current budget problems with the city.

This is another component of a battle between the city and the fire department as multiple fire stations have been shut down due to budget cuts.

More information will be released by city leaders on Monday.
