There were fire law headlines from three northeast states today:
In New York, the Village of Rye Brook reached a settlement with the Village of Port Chester over a contract dispute for fire services. According to Rye Brook Mayor Paul S. Rosenberg:
“The settlement between Rye Brook and Port Chester also allows us to immediately settle our contract dispute with the Rye Brook Professional Firefighters union. They have been working a lot of overtime since this dispute arose, and we really appreciate their efforts.”
In New Jersey, a Patterson firefighter has been charged in connection with a murder. Kaheem Hunt, 30 and an Army veteran, was accused of shooting Juan Martinez, 39, on may 1, 2017. More on that story.
In Pennsylvania, a volunteer firefighter has been charged with possession of child pornography. Erik Eagle, 22, a volunteer firefighter in Luzerne Township, was charged earlier this week.
