City Councilor Dunn calls for the end of New Bedford fire station blackouts


“Over the past few years, we’ve had four fatalities while stations were blacked out. Since October, we’ve had two fatalities in Ward 3 while stations were blacked out. Enough is enough.”

City Councilor Hugh Dunn presented a written motion last night that called for the City Council to go on record against the New Bedford Fire Department station “blackouts.”

On December 28, 2019, a fire at 143 Myrtle Street claimed the life of an elderly man.
