SALINAS, Calif.- Crumbling buildings, low staffing levels and lacking the proper equipment. That's what Salinas Fire said it's stacked up against. Firefighters put their lives on the line every day, even showing up to crime scenes beside Salinas Police who are also facing major budget constraints.
On Wednesday, firefighters at Station #3 explained the driveway is so old, they have to deal with a few insurance claims a year because they're personal cars take a beating as they pull in and out of the station. But that pales in comparison to the bigger issues at stake for Salinas Fire.
