    federal firefighters can be contracted out only if on the BRAC list. we have one here that came from Griffis Air Force Base that used to be in Rome, NY. our installation is represented by NFFE, but we have some support from the IAFF as an off post local, as IAFF F-256.

    Federal Firefighters can no longer be contracted out (I am sorry I don't know the specific ruling date/number) per FEDERAL mandate- which irritates the crap out of the Pentagon. WVA14- are you sure you aren't talking about being "RIF'ed"? (Reduction in Force) which is the same as being placed on the Stopper list??

    Question

    In reply to ArmyTruckCompany......last i knew, if the base was on the brac (base realignment and closure) list, the fire department could be contracted out. As with everything else with the government, that may have changed as well. I know some people have want to contract us out if the base goes to Co-Co, Contractor owned, Contractor operated. Not sure what the deal is there if they could or not. If anyone knows for sure if we can't be contracted out at all, sure would appreciate hearing from you and the regs. We have NFFE here representing us, but they don't show much interest in the fire department here. Stay safe out there.

    A BRAC dept can be contracted out six months prior to base closure date and for the caretaker force. I know because I was the last Chief of the Military Ocean Terminal In Bayonne NJ
